Card and Board Game Classes
We're different than most learning centres in several ways:
1. We Start From Is PLAY
We feel that kids ought to play. When we, Generation Xers, were kids we used to play highly-interactive board games almost every evening. Interesting observation: in many parts of Europe primary school kids don't get homework until they are in primary 4. Yet in the end European students turn out to be no better than Hong Kong students and vice versa. The reason for this choice in Europe is that kids need to learn to absorb content from the classes in the first place before they are given homework assignments. This allows them to have more play time after school. Play induces learning. Play kindles the creativity already in the child. Play is necessary to discover what you love and what you don't.

2. The Rules Of The Game
Every board game or card game has a rule book. We provide English listening exercises for our students so that when they listen enough to these very short listening exercises, they can recite the rules of the game they are about to play every Saturday. And as a result, they KNOW & UNDERSTAND the rules. Also, these rule books are loaded with brand new vocabulary the students have never even heard of.
And through interaction with their teacher and playmates, they get more speaking practice. Their teacher corrects their mistakes and the students improve their spoken English faster. If you agree, sign up.
3. Vocabulary Card Games
Besides the new vocabulary in the rule books, wee introduce card games to teach our students new adjectives, synonyms, antonyms and verbs. We focus on words used in real-life English. But there is more than vocabulary alone: our board games are trading games which develop a first form business acumen at a very young age. So if you want your child to understand business naturally, let them "learn the tricks of the trade".If you agree, sign up.
4. A safe English Environment
The biggest hurdle for primary school kids is their fear of failing and speaking up. To overcome that fear we need to give these kids an incentive to speak, a "reward" for speaking, not a punishment for not speaking. In fact this reward works "organically". If they speak, the game can continue. If they don't, it won't. Simple. If they speak, they make mistakes which becomes a golden opportunity for the English teacher to correct their mistakes before they continue. This teaches students that making mistakes is part of life. It's training, repetition, until you get it right. In order to learn English FAST you need to make mistakes faster.
