Merry Christmas from the UK. I'm back in Europe for the next couple of months to produce some amazing new Genki English stuff! It's a short newsletter this month, but have a look at the discussion board of the site for lots of hot topics!

NEW! Genki English DVD!! 1000 copies Free for Elementary Schools!

For the last 3 years we been visiting Elementary Schools and giving training to thousands of teachers from Hokkaido to Kyushu. In June this year alone we taught Genki English to 1000 teachers and over 7000 kids.

However the Shows and Seminars have proved so popular, and as we do them on a volunteer basis, theyfve become a victim of their own success with far too many requests to handle. So we have videoed three of the most popular lessons, spiced them up with lots of music and effects and put them on a funky new DVD! Parents and teachers can now order the DVD from www.GenkiEnglish.com but as our main aim is to support Elementary School English then we are giving away 1,000 copies of the DVD free to public elementary schools!!

Our mission is to make sure that Elementary School English doesnft turn out like the boring, grammar based system used in Junior High schools, where hardly anyone learns how to speak. With our travels around Japan they have seen the amazing results teachers have been getting using Genki English, where the kids really enjoy English and want to learn more. Hence with the DVD, Genki English want to show Japanese teachers that even if they canft speak English themselves, with the right attitude of gI can do it!h their students too can learn English, have fun and be genki!

So tell all your friends about the DVD, let's make a difference!

A Few More Christmas Ideas

I've put all the Christmas Ideas on the main page ( http://genkienglish.net/Christmas.htm ). Does anyone have any more? If so please share on the Ideas and Discussion board http://genkienglish.net/discussion.mv There are already some brilliant ideas on there!

One other idea I do have is that you split the kids into groups (use "mingle" http://genkienglish.net/mingle.htm ) and play a Christmas song. When they hear a Christmas word they know (like "snow", "reindeer", "Christmas" etc.) they stand up and shout the word out. The fastest group gets a point.

Good songs are "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer", "Jingle Bells" and of course "White Christmas".

The Night Before Christmas also went down really well with my adult class!

And Finally,

The Genki English card game has been a huge hit "my students loved the card game...I recommend you give it a try" said Kerryberry on the Ideas Board! Check it out at http://www.genkienglish.net/cardgame.htm
And don't forget the free Genki Christmas song on the site, now with a groovy animation! http://www.genkienglish.net/cardgame.htm

Have a fantastic holiday season, wherever you are. If you celebrate Christmas then I hope it's the genkiest one yet, and if not then have an amazing 2004!!

Be genki,
