Question: 8. How good is the The Bondaygee ESL System?
Answer: Well I can honestly say that in my ten years of teaching ESL in Korea, I never saw an ESL System faster than this one. Most teaching methods and schools throughout Korea, teach ESL in a way that doesn't promote "permanent and meaningful memories". That's why I made a revolutionary system with music, which is intended to last a life time! I still sing these word songs several years later and I still love them too. So many good memories are packed into each one! Honestly, on my first or second day in Korea, while teaching in a Kongju Elementary School, I started singing the Alphabet to the class while juggling balls. The kids cheered as they learned and when I left the class, the school Pricinpal turned to me and said, "You are a Pioneer in ESL!" I spent 10 years teaching creatively while constantly innovating.
Question: 9. How fast is the Bondaygee ESL System?
Answer: If you've already learned the English Alphabet and Phonics, then you can easily learn a word song-video-vocab list in one day. On the other hand, if you are an absolute beginner in ESL, then I recommend you visit my "Beginner Section" of the Menu (완전초보). There you will find what you need to get started with English. It includes lessons on the Alphabet and Phonics, etc.
