Louis Beckham, 4岁
Hailey Natalie, 两岁
KIP CENTRE, KUALA LUMPUR

Posted by on / 0 Comments

我们在家都是以纯中文 交谈的,所以去年在儿子Louis Beckham进入4岁幼儿班的第5个月后,某天我察觉到他无法与英文老师们好好沟通交流,甚至很多时候都听不懂老师在说些什么的时候,当下我就决定了把Louis Beckham送去弟媳强力推荐的Vital Years上课。我想让他在这个以英语为主的环境,熟悉这个语言,学习正确的发音,让他在这方面加强沟通交流的信心。 果然,去了Vital Years的短短几个月后,就让我看到了他语言上,认字上的进步;而最让我感到欣慰的是,此刻的他在幼儿园里已经可以与老师们沟通自如了。甚至有时候与友人聚餐时,他也会主动以英文跟他们的孩子们聊天呢!在家时,还会自动自发地拿起英文绘本阅读;看到他各方面的进步,我和先生更加肯定半年后也要将满27个月大的女儿Hailey Natalie送去Vital Years上课。 由于Hailey Natalie是上5天制的,相对于哥哥的一个星期才2天上课,她进步神速的英文,更让我们感到惊喜与惊讶!犹记得还未上课前,如果我们以简单英文与她对话,她会叉起双手气鼓鼓地回应我们说:“请不要说这种话,我听不懂”,选择不回应我们,那可爱的模样真是让我们感到好气又好笑,至今还深深烙印在我的脑海里。 但自从在今年的3月份开始上课后,她整个人不同了,与我们沟通时都可以华英交替地非常好。现在很多英文单字都会认了,每天放学回来还不停的哼唱英文歌,十句话五句不离英文,发音非常准确,一副信心满满的样子。我的妹妹们每次看到她喋喋不休地讲英文,都觉得Vital Years很不错,也纷纷打算将他们的孩子们送进去就读呢!有时心情大好的时候他们还会给我们办个小小演唱会,一边表演一边唱歌,当然每晚临睡前要求读一两本绘本的阅读习惯是少不了的。 我觉得Vital Years的教育理念非常棒,院长与老师们在教学上都非常地用心。老师一对一的教学模式,适时的从旁指导,引导他们使用英文沟通交流,互相问问题,这样的学习过程对他们来说是最重要的。看到孩子们在舒适开心零压力的环境下学习,享受上课的乐趣,我们觉得是值得的。 在此,我们衷心地感谢Vital Years分院KIP的老师们培养了我的孩子们对英语阅读的兴趣与能力,真心感谢他们给予我孩子们的一切,感恩! 妈妈Allice Lim
