Abacus is a very foundational and systematic learning process which involves the movement of the beads with your eyes, and then thinks with your brain and makes a move with your fingers. Abacus Learning traditionally consists of several levels depending on the Abacus vendor and is usually between 8-10. Each level is usually have duration of three months, slightly varied based on the age of the student. Now, this takes a child approximately two years to get through all these levels and completely master abacus skills. It is however a challenging task. Many students withdraw before reaching a level of proficiency due to the fact that the depth of learning is deeper especially at higher levels. This can be avoided if a minimum level of parental support and motivation is given to the child during the practice session of Abacus. We have witnessed dramatic improvement in children’s skills and brain functioning with Abacus education which in turn enhances self-esteem in a highly positive way.

ABACUS has the following benefits:

  • Enhances Cognitive Development
  • Helps to Understand Calculations Better
  • Makes Mathematics Fun
  • Teaches to Calculate Mentally
  • It Helps Children with Dyslexia
  • Boosts Imagination

On the whole, there are several benefits of abacus. By learning to use this tool, children and adults not only learn the basics but also learn to calculate faster in their minds without using any pen and paper. Moreover, learning abacus has so many perks, especially if you want your child to feel confident.
