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, ย but one thing to realize is that the kids of this generation aren’t the same as when we went to school. ย  They aren’t brainwashed by national TV and newspapers ( because they never watch or read them!) ย instead it’s the Instagram and social media influencers they look to. ย 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!ย 

Be genki,


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

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. 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. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!
