Foreign students

In two years, their English grades leapt from F9 to A1
It was all hard work, say Crescent Girls from China

Hi

I’ve always admired foreign students for their determination and commitment towards their studies.

Living in a foreign land and away from their loved ones, it’s not an easy feat to do so well.

Our kids have much to learn from them.

Best wishes

They have lesser distraction and stronger determination for sure. Our kids are too pampered.

Also, most subjects are easy for them and so they focus on English mainly. Lastly, those who come to Singapore are typically ready to slog hard and parents more or less sieve out that they are capable of achieving.....so they are a filtered lot of kids who can achieve and typically can excel in a smaller playground.
