WE are different and learn our way.

You can lead the horse to water but cannot make it drink.

WE are different and learn our way.

Teaching theory and practice suggests that it is better to understand and remember if you have learnt, discovered or worked it out your way and by yourself. The teacher only encourages and present the techniques to learn. But can s/he put it into your memory, brain and heart?

People have different abilities to memorise staff, these abilities change, but in general, there are 3-4 types of learning: Kinaesthetic, Visual, Audial, Logic.

We also listed here a few questionnaires: ‘What kind of a learner you are ?’, ‘Which is your strongest way of studying?’


We have to try different approaches and techniques to chose from. You and your child unique. S/he can find the best working for him/her. We also change! Today’s a ‘bad schoolchild’ make some breakthrough once, show talent in something else ! Praise your child every day, make him /her enjoy learning!


Praise your child every day, make him /her enjoy learning!
