Education in Singapore

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

Education is a very important topic given the fact that it is rated as one of the best in the world and can be compared to Finland and Japan’s system. Kids from these countries are given a head start in order to develop their skills related to mathematics and science. Parents are taking advantage of their youth to get the best from their mental development.

Another important aspect is the monetary part, as parents make an important investment so their kids can receive and extra help and continue growing. Bookstores are filled with assessment manuals where are found different sets of questions which are based on the curriculum from pre-kinder to 12 years old. Effects of this are beneficial because they get the information necessary for the future but it also affects their health.

All this preparation makes them feel overwhelmed as they fell that their dreams cannot come true in a matter of seconds if they do wrong at tests.  In consequence a new implementation is being prepared as they try to balance the academic preparation along with their emotional health to have as a result a well prepared workforce that is able of developing leadership and creative skills.
