>What kind of students...will benefit?
High ability students.

The curriculum revolves around techniques. 范文 is given as an exception. Comments are a little more detailed, though you'd need to figure out on your own how to incorporate those recommendations into improving your writing. In a way, creativity is encouraged since there is no template and one is welcome to ask the teacher for advice if stumped in the midst of developing the plot. Homework = 听写 = words taken from the chapter's content, not really useful. One good thing may be that there is greater oral interaction and the lessons are simply pleasant (stress absolutely zilch).

A few random examples from 作文 假期特别课程:
一,观察和思考
写人物对话
听写:有的乘客在呼呼地睡觉;有的乘客在专注地玩手机游戏
二,观察和联想
用事实说话
听写:他羞得脸一阵红一阵白,真希望地上有一个洞让他钻进去
三,观察和想象
描写场面
听写:认真地朗读;明媚的阳光;高兴得手舞足蹈;吓得飞了起来;蔚蓝的天空

因材施教 吧?I think phtthp has given a great analysis in the below thread

Hi, I would like to find out about the centre at Fu Lu Shou. I heard that most of the teachers are very passionate. I personally went to look at the materials for Primary 3, the staff was very friendly and she showed me all the printed materials the school use. The materials are indeed advance but i find a little disorganized (I was a little overwhelmed just looking through the books).
Just wondering, will the teachers be able to cover so many things in the lesson? Also, I'm also a little taken aback at the huge class size (18 or 20 students per class if I heard correctly). Do the kids show improvement after attending the lessons?

Hi
For 江, I like to check with parents whose kids are in the FLS centre whether they do 听写默写. From previous posts, it was mentioned that they do not give 范文. In that case, whatbis their methodology in improving the 作文 standard of a kid? Are their classes still 18 to 20?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Fizz,

My advice is to go down to the centre to take a look at their materials and talk to their staff. They should be able to reply all your queries. And from there, you can assess if the center is suitable for your kid.

I would like to find out too. Should my child have a certain standard before joining? Just worried because both father and I don't speak the language at home.. have heard good reviews about Jiang.

If your child can take quite high level of learning then go for it..I would rate in terms of difficulty starting from the least difficult these centres:

1) Berries
2) Tien Hsia (works for some but some find it a little dry)
3) Wang (more intense and difficult than Tien Hsia, they cover more words but I would advice may not be suitable for lower pri but could be more effective for upper pri)
4) Jiang (the hardest in my opinion)

Hi, Apologies for barging in... Due to proximity & timings, have studied at all 4 centres. Feel that to have long term benefits from JEC, one needs to have the luck of an experienced tutor. JEC AMK branch posters boast of some strong ones, seems fine. JMHO, JEC has the most challenging compre questions (text difficulty level is on par with WLC) no doubt. However, WLC has more challenging compo topics (ie. 看图,命题,完成) as well as 好词佳句 (very similar to TH ones but with 1 more rare expression per lesson thereabouts). Agree that WLC is a bit of an overkill at lower levels especially if one does not intend to do HCL. My preschooler had to learn 天上下起毛毛雨。for K2 听写... :sweat:
