3 Signs You’re Wasting Money On Your Child’s Chinese Enrichment

The CA1/checkpoint results are out – if your child scored badly or still dislikes learning Chinese despite having regular enrichment classes, you’ll need to seriously evaluate where things are going wrong. The good news? The school year’s not over yet – so there’s still time to course correct, and put your child on the right path and help them ace their subsequent Chinese papers.

Want to learn how to evaluate your child’s current Chinese enrichment programmes? Here are 3 signs that you’re wasting money on ineffective programmes at sub-par enrichment centres:

#1: The enrichment centre is using a one size fits all approach

Don’t be fooled by enrichment centres which tell you that the programme is “inclusive” – what this means is that they simply throw all their kids into the same programme, and teach with the same standardized approach. In these programmes, there’s zero flexibility for kids who are progressing more quickly, or more slowly than the rest.

Unfortunately, these one size fits all approaches are pretty common in enrichment centres – simply because conducting smaller, more specialized classes translates into higher manpower costs. In fact, most enrichment centres tell parents that they accept a maximum of 12 students, and then go on to pack 15-20 students into each class instead.

How do you get around this? The best enrichment centres are now relying on technology to overcome this flaw – more on that later!

#2: The enrichment centre doesn’t provide regular updates for parents

Teacher make a huge impact on your kids during class – but for maximum results, these efforts should be reinforced by parents at home. The problem arises, however, when enrichment centres don’t provide updates or any sort of clarity on your child’s progress, making it difficult for you to continue the learning process at home.

#3: Your kids dread going to class

It’s a huge myth that Chinese can’t be enjoyable. If your kids dread going to class each week, this merely shows that the enrichment centre’s curriculum is outdated, and that they need to provide better material that can stimulate your kids. Don’t settle for less – because why have your kids suffer through their weekly lessons when they could be having tons of fun?

Want to look for a more effective enrichment centre? Try KidStartNow’s Primary School programme, which has earned rave reviews from mummy bloggers and publications such as Young Parents Magazine. KidStartNow’s programme incorporates a proprietary BOSHI methodology to get children to learn Chinese the smarter and more effective way – with over 90% of our students loving the programme so much that they can’t wait to get to class each week!
