The Level-2 Course consolidates memory skills and image-based learning habit through high-, moderate- and low-speed exercises. Children at this age has just entered primary school. They are exposed to all sorts of left-brained repetitive exercises. An intensive 90-minute weekly whole-brained training definitely help these children to relax their mind and strengthen their whole-brained learning habit so that they won’t be easily affected by the ‘addictive’ left-brained learning environment in schools.
A few words from Dr. Tan Kok Liang:
Children at this age learn to make decisions and tend to have their own thoughts. Continuous failure and wrong decisions discourage them and to a certain extent, make them feel inferior, ‘useless’, or ‘worthless’. Telling children to ‘keep trying’, ‘don’t give up’, ‘never mind,’ ‘you can do it’, and so on are lessons that should always be accompanied by real examples. The moulding of character at this age is only effective when children are willing to listen and observe. The lack of family love and good examples could always lead to a sudden change in character owing to the influence by peers, electronic media and misleading information. Therefore, educators and parents should learn to synthesize children’s thinking so that we can see from their eyes. Learning desire, confidence and discipline constitute the recipe for cultivating self-learning ability. We should always remind ourselves that learning is not about getting A’s in exams but having the desire to explore one’s potential to become better.
