Giveaway – Sparkanauts Leyun 乐云 Chinese Programme

logo

It has been a while since our last classes at Sparkanauts, but we have still been occasionally using their bonding packages and flash cards at home. I love how their material is quite timeless and relevant to all ages! Today, Scout wanted me to sing one of the songs from the class (the “Mystery box” song), and Mittens, who has sat in the room maybe 1-2 times in the last 2 years, said “That’s the Sparkanauts song right?”. I’m simply amazed at how much leverage I’m getting out of the classes!

Sparkanauts recently surprised me by introducing new Chinese classes. Actually I was surprised but at the same time not surprised because they are an innovative lot, and always coming up with new programmes or improving current ones!

The Leyun 乐云 Chinese programme officially launches in August 2015, and Abacus has attended one of their previous Chinese classes, and thoroughly enjoyed it! As always, their classes involve a lot of music and movement, and gross motor play, which is what the kids love. I really think all learning environments should really include lots of physical activity as Sparkanauts do!
