SAN FRANCISCO, May 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Placing importance on high exam scores over that of a quality-oriented education is an issue that is persistent across countries and cultures. In recent years, the drawbacks to this system are gradually appearing in the children who were put through this rigorous upbringing. Though these children can test well and achieve excellent scores, many of them are showing low emotional intelligence in life. Parents everywhere are starting to worry more than ever about the future of their children: whether they can live independently, confidently, and get along well with others.
DaDaABC, the leading EdTech company in China, has been committed to "empowering our children to achieve more," a core philosophy since its conception. The company not only strives to provide their students with a high quality, comprehensive English learning platform, but also an environment that nurtures each students' unique personality and the development of skills.
To relieve the growing concerns of parents, DaDaABC recently introduced a new series of public classes called "EQ Stories." Using simple English words and sentences, instructors in these classes work at helping their students formulate and understand interpersonal communications in their everyday life. "Bringing out the public classes is a brilliant idea, and as a DaDaABC instructor, I really think that the company cares about children. I'm really happy to be a part of the guidance of kids into their future," said Eric, a DaDaABC instructor from Santa Clara.
Available as of a few months ago, some classes that the students can take include: learning English songs and handcrafting exercises. Through the arts and crafts, these classes aim to develop more than just the student's language abilities, but their cognitive, social, and practical ones as well. Because DaDaABC wants all children to be able to enjoy the benefits of these programs, the classes are completely free. Parents can simply go and download DaDaABC's App, and register. Once they have done so, their child can watch these public classes anytime and anywhere on their smart devices.
"EQ Stories" – In English and Easy to Understand
The overarching theme of DaDaABC's new public classes is emotional quotient. These classes bring the students into the stories by means of clear topics, lively content, and thoughtful narratives. Such stories will inspire and train the students to learn, think, and talk about real world issues. In doing so, these students become better prepared for their future. "I like the new public classes. They are not hard to understand. Now I talk to my parents and teachers like friends, and I like to share my thoughts with them," said Sisi, a nine-year-old DaDaABC student.
Currently, DaDaABC's public class consists of two series. The older series, titled "Puppets Tell Fairy Tales," places puppets in the roles of characters from English fairy tales, and this allows the students to better understand the meaning behind these stories in an engaging and creative way.
The current and newer series, titled "EQ Stories," emphasizes the student's personality, and places a focus on moral education. These stories are based closely on the little happenings of day-to-day life. For example, in the class "Respect and Take Care of Things," the instructors will begin by listing the functionality of different everyday items and objects. Then taking it beyond that, the instructors teach their students the importance in putting items back after use, and in protecting our environment and public properties. The end goal of this class is to convey the idea of respect and value that one should hold for things in their everyday life. What makes this next example unique is that it is taught from the students' perspective. Titled "When I Feel Afraid," students are encouraged to talk to their parents when they encounter fear, and to seek out help by speaking their mind. These classes are designed so that its students will learn the many ways in building trust with others and in winning their respect.
Besides public classes, students can also use DaDaABC's App to practice their pronunciation. DaDaABC was the first in the industry that added intelligent voice recognition technology into pronunciation practice course. When students speak a word or a sentence, the voice recognition system is able to generate the standard pronunciation in the backstage, and compare and correct the kids' pronunciation. Students will get detailed feedback after each practice that let them know how to improve and encourage them to practice more.
Founded in 2013, DaDaABC is the most innovative English training institution in China, and was established to provide what has become one of China's most successful intelligent English learning platforms for children. Winner of over 15 awards and recognitions in 2016, DaDaABC developed a leading English training system focused on one-on-one online tutoring and encourage youngsters to learn and practice while having fun with instructors, and announced a total capital raising of 500 million RMB in Series B and Series B+, which will be used in market expansion, curriculum development and learning experience improvement. DaDaABC has been helping students from mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, France, Germany, and other non-English speaking countries.
