Why do we learn English? For the Instagram generation kids ….

Quite a few of you write in to ask me “How do I answer when the kids ask “Why are we learning English?””

There are many reasons of course,  but one thing to realize is that the kids of this generation aren’t the same as when we went to school.   They aren’t brainwashed by national TV and newspapers ( because they never watch or read them!)  instead it’s the Instagram and social media influencers they look to.  Which makes our job a whole lot easier :

And of course, always make sure we are teaching what they want to learn in a way they want to learn it! 

Be genki,


P.S.  The Cinderella Game also works great for this!

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...
