VIP Genki Phonics Page

With more and more parents using Genki Phonics at home, I’ve tidied up the main phonics page and moved the in depth “for teachers” videos & VIP printables to this page.

So if you’ve got your students, adults or kids, up to speed with their speaking, now’s the time to get the reading and writing just as Genki!

Teach your children to read in 7 hours or less with Genki Phonics!

Get started with the Overview Video

First we have the portrait A4 posters (with stories,) recommended for front of class use.


*You need to be a Teacher’s Set owner to download these files.  The stories and posters are in the same pdf file,  the story coming after the corresponding poster.

Using Phonics to teach Writing?

And if you want to introduce writing as well, this is the video to teach phonics in longer lessons with writing.
(This video is in Japanese but I put up English subtitles for you too.)

And here are the workbooks to use with the writing part.    Again these are for VIP members who have the Teacher’s Set.

Phonics

The idea of phonics is that you teach your students the various English sounds, then the letters they correspond to. The advantage of this over simply teaching the alphabet is that once they have mastered the main sounds, they can then read many English words.

On this page you’ll find the full Genki Phonics posters course and some online practice games. So tell your students about this page so they can practise at home, it’s a great way to show parents how well you are teaching them in class!

With the phonics posters the children will automatically get the correct sounds, but for parents and teachers you can simply click the sounds at the top of this page to hear how they should sound.

You have the vowels, the consonants and several “blend” and “combination” sounds where consonants are used together. Move your mouse over the sounds to hear them pronounced, or click on the pictures to hear them.

Most areas of the world pronounce consonants in the same way, however regional accents appear in the vowel sounds. New Yorkers have different vowels from Texans, Londoners are different from Glaswegians. When you teach, choose one, but make sure the kids also know there are many variations.

The games on here are great as the time limits really make sure the kids start listening and not just looking at the letters (hence why kids will always beat adults!). The pronunciation has no strange accents and above all they are fiendishly addictive games!

Here are a few extra tips and tricks for teachers:

Enjoy your Genki Phonics,  you can find all the materials above and if you’re not a VIP member yet, order your Teacher’s Set and you’ll have full VIP access!

Enjoy!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    Hi Richard, I went through all your explanation! Great and interesting videos. I like very much the idea of using gestures to help fix the sound of the letters and I was wondering how I can be sure about the right pronunciation for all the words! Maybe going on internet…. could be the answer! It would be great to have your explanation for every sound/letter…..maybe I am asking to you too much! You know, I like very much your explanation… -the “J” sound which meets a kind of wall- to help students remember that it is a short sound! Anyway I was thinking to use the phonics at the end of the lesson. Five minutes as you said in the video. I have nearly done five levels, with my nine years old students, and I was thinking to have a go also with the phonics. Maybe they could do it during the summer. Is it a good idea? Does it make sense? Thank you Elisa

    Hi Elisa!

    All the sounds of all the words are in the Genki English software. So just get them to learn all the pronunciations for all the words at home during the regular Genki English lessons and they’ll have all the words & sounds perfect for the phonics!

    You can start the phonics after 5 levels if you wish, although as always with phonics, the later you start, the better the results!
