Why Confidence?

Why should we focus on Confidence? Confidence is the belief in one's ability to succeed. Improving the ability comes with being prepared.

At LK Academy, we believe that confidence is needed in both the spoken as well as written components of the exam and it is prevalent in our everyday lives.

What Parents Say

"Both Kobe (11) and Nigel (8) have been with LoveKids for the past couple of years. We have seen their command of English and their use of vocabulary and grammar improve over the years.

The preparations by the teachers at LoveKids gave our boys much needed confidence and motivation prior to their exams and assessments. Going over the sequence and necessary steps really helped them in their exams. The mock oral assessment by LoveKids also helped my older boy, Kobe, ace his oral exams in school."
