I Send my kids there. They are not as good as it seems. Their teaching is out dated. My opinion is do not waste your money.

Edward De Bono Training

Postby monmon31 » Tue Sep 28, 2010 8:30 am

Hi All,

I am keen to send my DS for the above training. Can anyone who has sent their kids before share their thoughts about the course? How has it benefitted your kid?

Lost mum :?:

My son is currently in the K2 programme. So far, he looks forward going to the class. Every lesson, there would be a piece of work which requires them to think creatively on what to draw. e.g. a blank piece of paper with the letter "U". the kids are expected to think out of the box and draw something out from that... other than that, there are lessons that would teach them logical thinking.. i have seen patterns, sequencing of events etc. basically, it's to teach them that there are more than possibilites to one question.

Hi Ctrlaltdel,

Thanks.-that would mean there are no right or wrong answers. :D
Does your son go on weekly basis and how long will each lesson be?

hmm, some questions do have right and wrong lah.. but generally, that's the direction of the lessons.. to instill the creative element in the children and to let them have logical thinking.

my son goes for lessons every sat morning and for k2, it is one hour long. i understand for p1 onwards, it is 1 hour and 15 min long though.

I am wondering if I should send my DS ( Pri1 ) for the intensive school holiday session or take the weekly lessons? What would be your advise?

I'm also considering my K1 for the weekly lessons. May I know the fees, class size and location? Thanks.

My suggestion is to go for the holiday sessions first, let your DS try it out, see whether he likes it first before committing yourself to the weekly lessons. You can also take a look at the materials to have a sense what they are teaching.

That's what i normally do for my DS too. Holiday programmes to test out his reaction. :-)
