Free DVD From Genki English

The Genki English duo, made up of ex-elementary school JETs Richard Graham and Will Jasprizza, have released a new DVD and are giving away 1,000 free copies to elementary schools. For the last 3 years Genki English have been giving voluntary training sessions at elementary schools across the country. In June this year alone, they taught 1,000 teachers and over 7,000 kids. The Genki English website is now visited by 2,000 people a day from 99 different countries. They currently have too many requests from schools than they can handle in person, and so released three of their most popular lessons in video format on the DVD. "The Genki English mission is to make sure that elementary school English doesn't turn out like the boring, grammar based system used in junior high schools, where hardly anyone learns how to speak," said Graham. "With our travels around Japan, we have seen the amazing results teachers have been getting using Genki English, where the kids really enjoy English and want to learn more.
