In addition to teaching children to recognize letters and numbers, practice spelling, practice writing, she also teaches how to hold a pen, board, and chalk; how to write on the board and practice self-discipline and concentration while studying. “These skills should have been forged from the preschool level, but because of the long break, the children are disadvantaged.” Ms. Nhung said.
