Why to learn Phonics?
Phonics is a method for teaching the reading and writing of an alphabetic language (such as English, Arabic and Russian). It is done by demonstrating the relationship between the sounds of the spoken language (phonemes), and the letters or groups of letters (graphemes) or syllables of the written language.

Phonics Level 1
1 to 3 Months
2 to 3 Years Old
Phonics instruction must be systematic and sequential. In other words, letters and sounds are taught first. Then letters are combined to make words and finally, words are used to construct sentences.
Step 1: Introduce the vowels and their short sounds.
Step 2: Introduce the consonants and their sounds.

Phonics Level 2
4 to 6 Months
4 to 6 Years Old
Step 3: Begin blending short vowels with consonants.
Step 4: Begin blending and reading one vowel words and short sentences.

Phonics Level 3
7 to 9 Months
6 to 7 Years Old
Step 5: Introduce the long vowel sounds.
Step 6: Practice blending long vowels with consonants.

Phonics Level 4
10 to 12 Months
7 to 8 Years Old
Step 7: Begin blending and reading two vowel words and Introduce two special rules.
Rule #1: The One Vowel Rule Rule #2: The Two Vowel Rule
Step 8: Introduce the Phonics Charts which include the special sounds that are made when letters “stick” together.

Why learn abacus?
This skill has proven to be beneficial in improving one’s mental capability, increasing one’s speed of response, memory power and concentration power. This course has become a compulsory curriculum in many countries such as Taiwan, China and Japan, and countries such as India, Malaysia and Singapore have introduced the curriculum to schools. For adults who have missed out the opportunities to learn this skill when young, it is still not to late to acquire these skills so as to improve one’s memory and concentration powers. Learning this skill will help to strengthen one’s mental power, an important asset in this knowledge economy.
