In the Matrix movie, when Neo wanted to learn Kung Fu he didn’t spend 20 years learning it.
He just got a chip in the back of his neck, opened his eyes and said “I know Kung Fu!”
And that’s what people really want.
They want the result and in an ideal world it would be instantaneous.
People don’t really want to spend the time and money to learn it.
So our job is to think “How close can we get to that ideal?”
Of course we’ll never get there but what can we take out, what friction can we remove, what techniques and technology can we use so that we get there much more quickly?
That’s what people want* and getting one step closer each day is what will make your program or course even more successful!
P.S. *very often I get teachers interested in the Genki Flipped Classroom but then get scared off by the idea of children getting fluent so quickly, “What will they do in high school?”, “What will I teach afterwards?”, “The parents won’t stay with me as long!”, “Going faster isn’t important for me, slow and steady is my style” etc. etc. But when you look at parents, what parent would say “no” to having their children learn more quickly (so they save more fees in the long run!), more in depth and have more fun doing it? That is what every parents wants. And they will go elsewhere if they can’t get it from you. So if you feel resistance to flipping your class, or indeed starting Genki English at all if you haven’t started yet, try thinking about it from the parents’ and kids’ point of view. What would they want you to do? Dance with the fear, base your goals on what the parents and kids want and then we’re here to coach you to results that you would have only previously dreamed about! Let’s leap into the future together!
