3 Simple Steps to Construct a Consistent Study Routine for Your Child

It is always a challenge to just put your child in one place and simply expect them to sit there for half an hour just to study/do their homework. Is it impossible? Well, no. Is it difficult? Well, definitely and obviously yes.

However, the rewards come down to your children having healthy learning habits and also letting them find their uniqueness and specialty in a subject.

They could be well-versed in languages and creativity or logical and critical in mathematics. The larger purpose is for your children to sharpen their thinking and mature throughout their learning journey. If your children are struggling with studying then a study routine can be a massive help.

That being said, all habits start from us, the parents or those who are older than them. Environment and influence are a big factor in cultivating our children. So, how exactly can you establish a study routine for your child? Don’t stress for there are 3 simple steps.

3 simple steps to establish a study routine for your child

1. Study Habits – Observe your child's habits. Developing study habits is a good starting line to a good study routine. Habits, by definition, are autonomous actions that were developed over time without much conscious thought. Parents can foster positive study habits by encouraging them to take positive actions like taking notes, reading a new page, or asking if they have any hesitation. All of these habits can be helpful for your children’s learning journey.

2. Planning and Preparation – Always plan the study session and separate it from actual learning and completing homework. Help them plan around the activities they want to do. Having an actual timetable or schedule can help them to navigate through their school life. Preparation doesn’t always mean giving them books and letting them do their thing, it can also mean preparing them mentally by talking through them.

3. Praising and Rewards – Keep talking to them about studying. Get them to be ready in a mindset to study. Be supportive and do not hesitate to praise even if it is for a very minor achievement. Have a reward system. Always give rewards alongside praises. It can boost their confidence and love for learning. It is about acknowledging the value of their hard work and dedication.

The Growing Importance of After-School Learning

The period that our children spend at school is the most significant time of their learning journey. However, learning or studying after the school period can be argued to be just as important. This is the time for children to address their learning gaps and nurture themselves as self-directed learners.

Now, parents do not have to limit their options just through programs or tuitions. Letting them express themselves through sports and other activities can be considered after-school learning. Parents and their children reading a book together is another example of after-school learning.

The impact of after-school activity is bigger than you actually think. It is a great avenue for our children to develop personal and social skills. An avenue for them to take a step back from a school environment that can quickly turn monotonous and repetitive. This is why co-curricular activities exist and become a key part of the school besides classes and exams.

Several parents realized the importance. Which led to them looking for school holiday camps, courses, gyms and competitions for their little ones. Learning should never be centered on one channel. Learning is universal and after-school activity is one of these many learning channels.

There are many after-school programs in the market today but why should parents invest in them?

1. Letting our children decompress and learn their subjects in a more laid-back manner that is away from school classes.

2. They will enrich their social skills after meeting new people and spending time away from their usual social cliques at school.

3. Our children will boost their academic skills through personalized learning and consultation.

4. The aimless hours of them playing with the gadgets can turn into productive hours of learning.

5. They are less likely to engage in problematic behavior like bullying, drug abuse, truancy or become crime victims.

Speaking of afterschool programs, hop on aboard at Eye Level, a world-renowned enrichment center. It’s a place for your children to further strengthen their learning foundation and experience 1-to-1 coaching as well as personalized learning. Enroll in November to enjoy our Year End Booster promo where you can pay 2 months to get 1 free class PLUS a 100% off registration waiver.

Raising confident communicators, from the classroom to a world of opportunities


Raising confident communicators, from the classroom to a world of opportunities

Learning English isn’t only about mastering grammar and vocabulary; it's about opening the doors to opportunities on an international scale. In today’s globalised modern-age, equipping kids with proficient English skills helps them with personal growth that goes beyond the classroom and ensures that they’re prepared for global prospects in the future.

English is more than a language; it’s a bridge to cultural understanding. As children embark on their English learning journey during their Early Years and Primary levels, they break barriers, celebrate global diversity, and foster friendships from different parts of the world. This exposure develops a global perspective that enriches their minds and broadens their horizons, enabling them to view challenges and solutions through diverse lenses.

Multilingualism improves cognitive abilities in addition to communication skills. Studies have shown that learning new languages equips children with enhanced cognitive function, agility, memory, creativity, and problem-solving. As they learn about vocabulary and grammar, their brains become more adept at juggling multiple tasks, a skill that proves beneficial in various life situations.

Learn more on our courses for kids and teens

Proficiency in English often translates to improved academic performance. With the majority of global academic resources available in English, children become empowered to tap into a wealth of knowledge that spans continents. Whether it’s science, literature, or arts, mastering English provides them with a broader canvas to paint their academic journey. Enrolling in extra curricular classes supports their educational learning of the language, leading to greater academic success which is especially helpful for students at Primary and Secondary levels.

The world’s job market is no longer confined within national borders. English is a widely used universal language across many professional environments. Preparing students to be confident communicators can give them a head start on navigating the international job markets seamlessly. From boardroom meetings to international business deals, being proficient in English not only aids in professional communication but also boosts negotiation skills. In essence, English becomes a potent tool to propel them towards their career aspirations.

Recognising the multifaceted benefits of learning English, the British Council in Malaysia offers tailored courses for kids spanning all age groups, from playful preschoolers to ambitious high schoolers. What sets these courses apart is our holistic approach which ensures that children aren’t just proficient in English, but gain the necessary confidence to step out into the world as global communicators and contenders.

In the 21st century, language learning goes beyond academic grades; it's about shaping future leaders, thinkers, and innovators. Ensuring children are fluent in English provides them with the passport to global opportunities and an enriched life. Your kids’ lifelong learning adventure awaits.

Help your child excel in all areas and stay academically competitive by turning curiosity into confidence with English tuition in Malaysia at the British Council.

Nurturing Continuous Learning in Our Children – Eye Level

Learning should be not be limited for the purpose of academic success. It should translate into a constant pursuit of knowledge and skills in life. Mathematics, science and language are just one facet of knowledge. Cooking, fixing pipes, treating others well are some examples of mundane activities that require knowledge and learning process.

Continuous learning is necessary to be nurtured into our children. This will transform them into having the ability to think for themselves, express themselves and achieve self-fulfillment. Why exactly? That is because learning is equivalent to the development of mind. For our growing children with young minds, the more they learn, the sharper they are.

Now, some of us may not be too familiar with the term “continuous learning” but it does synonymize with the term “lifelong learning”. Many parents out there are realizing in importance of making their children lifelong learners. Then the question became, how can we encourage continuous learning for children? There are few steps that you can start with.

1. – Engage in their curiosity. Learning biggest obstacle is boredom. While, curiosity is a cure for that. From this curiosity, blooms their passion. It can be something unrelated to academic. Like sports, coding, music or acting. The point being is letting them invest their mind, energy and time. Let them experience failures within while chasing success.

2. – Wide-range of interaction. Interaction here refers to children taking actions like reading, writing, communicating and observing. For example, bringing your child to the zoo and letting them observe various animals. Or play badminton with them and give them tips on what they can do better. These interactions that encourage our children to be hands-on will open them the beauty of learning new things.

3. – Bringing togetherness. Engaging in these activities is good and all but do not underestimate the power of doing together with the whole family. Parents should definitely try to do more with their children even if it’s doing the homework together. For instance, completing the jigsaw puzzle together. This can bring out their sense self-satisfaction more. Achieving learning goals alone is satisfying but what if you achieve them together with family.

4. – Opportunity to teach others. Learning is all well and good but teaching is just as important. Teaching others can help your children retain the knowledge/skill they learned better. Always allow them the opportunity to teach you or their siblings about something they learn. Be patient and let them explain the concepts using their own words which would train them to be more expressive.

5. – Do not focus on grades. This is the most important step. Never ever should you push nor emphasize on grades for your children. It’s not that these academic grades aren’t important but rather it should not be a point of great concern. We want our children to gain interest and understand concepts as well as appreciate the process of learning and education. 

Continuous learning is an ongoing venture with your children. Patience and perseverance are key to achieving this. Eye Level revolves around continuous learning as we focus on our students to complete our programs rather than scoring in our programs. We have no grading system for students rather just levels for them to climb higher in English or Math. We want them to truly understand concepts step-by-step at their own learning pace.

Our classes are just 45 mins long in a weekly or bi-weekly basis since we don’t want our students to see learning as a burden but rather as an opportunity.

Continuous Learning – The Eight Keys to Success

Eye Level is a supplemental education program focused on developing our students to be critical thinkers and lifelong learners which originated in South Korea for over 40 years. Throughout the years, Eye Level has nurtured millions of students in 20 countries worldwide and what makes us different is our educational principle starts with understanding a child's individual learning needs, enabling them to master concepts and progress at their own pace, building academic confidence and self-directed learning habits.

The development of oneself starts with learning. Continuous learning is a form of motivation or persistence to learn new skillsets and knowledge be it temporarily or ongoing. 

Here are eight benefits of Continuous learning that can bring a huge impact:

1. Personal Growth: 
Continuous learning allows individuals to expand their knowledge and skills, which can lead to personal growth and self-improvement. It helps individuals stay mentally stimulated and engaged, and provides opportunities for self-discovery and self-development.

2. Professional Development: 
Continuous learning is essential for staying relevant and competitive in today's dynamic job market. It helps individuals acquire new skills, stay updated with industry trends, and enhance their expertise. This can boost their career prospects and increase employability.

3. Adaptability: 
Continuous learning promotes adaptability and resilience, as it enables individuals to learn and adapt to ever-changing circumstances, technologies, and environments. This is particularly crucial in this fast-paced and evolving world we live in today.
4. Increased Confidence: 
Acquiring new knowledge and skills through continuous learning can boost individual's confidence, as it equips them with the tools and abilities to tackle challenges and solve problems effectively.

5. Personal Fulfillment: 
Learning is a fulfilling and enriching experience that can enhance an individual's sense of accomplishment, satisfaction, and self-realization. It fosters a curious and growth-oriented mindset, which can lead to a more gratifying and meaningful life.

6. Improved Cognitive Function: 
Continuous learning has been shown to improve cognitive function, including memory, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. It helps keep the brain active and engaged, which can potentially reduce the risk of cognitive decline in our later years.

7. Social Connection: 
Learning provides opportunities for social interaction and connection with like-minded individuals, creating a sense of community and fostering meaningful relationships. It can also promote cultural understanding and empathy by exposing individuals to diverse perspectives and experiences.

8. Personal Innovation: 
Continuous learning encourages creativity and innovation, as it inspires individuals to think critically, explore new ideas, and develop novel solutions to problems. It nurtures an innovative mindset that can be applied in various aspects of life, including work, personal projects, and problem-solving in everyday situations.

At Eye Level, our goal is to provide an optimized learning environment in which students develop a love of learning and a strong sense of responsibility. With 1-on-1 coaching and guidance, students will know the strengths and weaknesses of their study habits and try to bring positive results.
