👉Before Starting Study Ahead Program
Zach, who is 5 years old, studies at a bilingual kindergarten.
Even though there are English classes in kindergarten, Zach still feels shy when speaking in English. Last winter break, Zach's mother registered for our coding winter camp. This was Zach's first introduction to coding. Zach's mother was curious to know how a 5 years old kid can learn how to code, plus the course was taught in English.
👉Why Lighthouse Camps?
Zach's mother thought learning a new content as well as strengthening English oral ability at the same time was a fantastic idea. According to Zach's mother, she said that Zach was excited to come to the winter camp every day. As a result, Zach was always the first one that showed up every day. Although the camp only lasted for 5 days, we could feel Zach's joy and enthusiasm every single day. When the camp ended, Zach's mother insisted on letting Zach continue to attend our camp. A large part of the reason is due to the fact that Zach enjoyed the camp tremendously, which in turn spiked his interest in learning English.
Zach's mother wanted Zach to continue learning English after school while maintaining a high level of interest. In February 2019, Zach joined the "Study Ahead" program and began learning phonics. Yesterday was Zach's 57th lesson. We chatted with Zach's mother yesterday and she said: "Zach can now read long vocabularies on his own, and he can sometimes point out my mistake when it comes to pronunciation.” Ever since he attended this course, he began liking to read English books, and can start to recognize more vocabularies.
當營隊結束後，Zach媽媽希望維持Zach的對英文學習得熱情，但希望是利用平常下課的時間，於是今年二月加入study Ahead 開始phonics 的課程，昨天是他第57堂課，我們跟Zach媽媽聊天，Zach媽媽說他現在看到拼字很長的單字都會自己唸出來，有時候還會指正我的發音，自從他參加這個課程，他開始習歡閱讀英文讀本，而且也開始認得更多單字。
Zach's mother is happy that her son enjoys learning English so much. On top of it all, Zach can now use more vocabularies to form sentences. In the beginning, Zach wished to study with other kids, but we found out that he learns better on his own. That is because the teacher can give him more attention, and be more focused on his progress.
