Our holistic approach
How it works
The entire program above are not progressive from one area to the next. One or more areas will be taught at one time but everyone will start from the same stage that is learning the simple addition and subtraction with an abacus. The amount of time to complete each area will be vary from one learner to another. At Fun With Abacus, we don’t pressure our students to keep up their learning pace with our syllabus’s time frame. We allow them to work on their own individual developmental pattern.
The length of time to complete the entire Fun With Abacus program depends on a learner’s learning curve. Most young learners take about 5 years to complete it and upon completion of the program, the children will be equip with the knowledge to work on the Degree level papers. If the young learner is keen to challenge himself/herself to take the Degree Paper, they can continue the lesson with us. We will help them to bring their mental calculation speed to the next level.
Set goals and keep students on track
A report card will be given to all students and our teachers will stamp on the card when the student has achieved the teacher’s expectation. The report card is to provide our students and their parents a sense of achievement in their learning.
At Fun With Abacus, we believe in teaching the child to love learning and encouraging them in a positive way. Praising the child or giving them a stamp as a reward are some of the examples of how we tell a child that we recognise their good work.
Most parents feel the pressure when they know that their little ones need to sit for a test. At Fun With Abacus, we believe that all young learners love to see themselves progressing. This statement can be testify when we set a time limit for our students to complete a certain set of work during our lessons. You will see the students are always very excited towards it as they want to do better than their peers. Therefore, doing an assessment test will help the learner to know their strength and weakness and our teachers can help them even better. Upon completion of every two books, the students are eligible to sit for our in-house Assessment Test. A Certificate of Achievement will be given to the student upon passing the test.
Students will also be eligible to take the International Grading Examination by Taiwan National Abacus Mental Arithmetic Association after 18 months of learning.
