About this course:
In this challenging course, we first introduce our students to the Abacus, an ancient tool developed around 3000 years ago to teach children calculation. Both hands are used to manipulate the Abacus beads, ensuring stimulation of both the left and right sides of the brain. The combination of touch, movement and numerical concept is our initial focus. Simultaneously, we train our students to develop their mental and fine motor skills like concentration, listening, observation, fingering and speed writing.
A few weeks after training, our course instructors comfortably take the abacus away to allow students’ minds to gain the ability to calculate without the need of a real abacus, solely depending on their imagination as they develop the ability to retrieve the correct result of the calculation using a “Mental Abacus” which is an imaginary device. Our strategic method of teaching stimulates the brain and increases a child’s achievement in various academic areas.
