Not yet. But a friend said highly of the place. I have seen the story they used - pretty difficult though. Are u familiar or your kids there? It seems that their approach is non conventional & not like normal classroom setting

In class, they read a book together, maybe a chapter each lesson. They will discuss, summarize a chapter. The children will write their own storyline based on the characters or a particular scene of the story. They focus more on creativity and they don't do worksheets etc...not suitable for those who want to drill their children fast to score.

It's best that u talk to the director to understand more.

Yes Jav, I saw their story book pretty difficult for my boy as he is in P4. I'm unsure, whether it can really help my boy English.

I'll try it out maybe beginning of Dec or next year, as now is exam fever :) I would like him to used these time for his revision and school practice works first.

Anyone has comment on their creative writing for lower primary?

Are they very academically driven? Thought of signing up for my pr 1 son but worry it may be too boring for him. (write and read, read and write style)

Anyone can share what will they do in class?

But their fee is not cheap though.
