I enrolled my P3 boy with BTSC Han Language centre. Tried out the compo/compreh module for 1st and 2nd term, the enrichment module for 2nd term. Did not see improvement in his SA1 compreh.

So happened another centre has a timeslot for enrichment module after Jun hols, I then gave one mth's notice to stop both modules.

I find Han's worksheets not on par with my P3 boy's SAP sch. The tutors are patient and approachable.

I enrolled my P3 boy with Bt Timah Shopping Centre Han Language centre.

Now with Hua Cheng @ Bt Timah Plaza (same as my elder boy).

Hv not seen the SA2 papers, so cant tell whether my P3 boy has improved. So far, only his weekly tingxie and fill in the blanks improved.

Is your child in a SAP sch too?

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for your reply. Oh no, my DD is only going to be in K2, currently in Berries. I m just considering on other alternatives when she goes to P1.

Hi Jennifer,

I have been to Bukit Timah SC and seen the Han centre there too, I noticed their signboard is blue but another Han centre at Serangoon Central that I passed by before had a red signboard. Are they under the same co.? Are they a franchise or are they totally unrelated? Cos from what I know most franchises still stick to the same signboard like CMA. I am considering Han as I may want to change my kids chinese tuition to another centre but am wondering why the diff centres seem different. :?

For this SA2, he made a 10 points improvement, his other classmate also 9 points improvement. He is very happy n kept talking abt it, esp he got almost full marks in OE compreh compared to SA1 paper (failed OE compreh).

The tutor frankly told us it is impossible to do well if the child only comes in for once a week tuition and "cold storage" the tuition materials at home, must also revise on our own regularly.

The tutor also told me we are lucky to get this class combination in which both children are keen to learn and outdo each other.

I am not aware of this, only been to the one at BTSC. Why not clarify with the front desk staff?
