I've seen results in my kids. I don't know how to express my feelings... I'm sure all mums out there would be proud to see their little ones improved so much. Thank god, my $$$ is not gone to waste. I've already signed them up for next year class.

Hi,

Can you share more which level are your kids in and what kind of improvements do you see? My P1 and P2 are in BC as well and yes, I've signed them up next year too.

My P1 started with reading development as his word recognition wasn't good at end K2. He subsequently moved to creative english in term 3. His english results is the 90's range for SA1 and SA2. Eg. for main paper, if not for his careless mistake, I am sure he can score full marks. I gathered that he speaks proper english unlike my P2 girl (he probably learnt that from being a kids central junkie previously). Also besides BC, I was also trying to get him to read. I also did other things (eg. accelerated advanced phonics prog in end K2 + not forgetting the school teacher so frankly I don't which to attribute his results today.

Meanwhile for my P2, for her SA2 this time round, I think I am finally seeing some improvement in her written expression (as in, I don't think her overall score got pull down by her written expression). Again, we are not solely dependent on BC as the school teacher also did a great job. So I can't attribute to BC only.

Well.... you can see that I am alittle confused here especially to see a strong statement on your joy :lol: . So wanted to hear more from you on which area did you find that BC really made a difference in your kids.

But one thing for sure, the kids enjoy gg to BC.

For Primary levels, it ranges from $1050 to $1150 for half a year. $2045 to $2300 for full year. If u sign up for a whole year, then u get further $200 off, ie $2100. If sibling already a student, enjoy $30 off. You can choose 12 mthly instalment plan if you make payment via DBS/POSB/UOB credit card.
