What Parents Say

"LK has truly nurtured my child's interest genuinely to enjoy learning and understanding of the language. My child looks forward to class every week and looks forward to meeting with her teacher. A happy environment with the patient guidance of her teacher really enabled her to benefit academically. Not only that, she has grown in her personal development as well when it comes to having confidence to speak and express her thoughts well.

Her confidence had been slowly built to apply what she has learnt. She knows she can do it for her daily work and exam papers!"
