I heard these questions so many times last week, so today, let me assure you that kids' brains have an incredible capacity. Never underestimate the power of a child's brain. Its development is in your hands! Check out this dazzling 4-year-old, as she speaks 7 languages without confusing any of them. Not
With our FREE Trial English lessons for Kids aged 2-6 years old kicking off next week in Uster (24.10 - 28.10), I thought I'd show you a little bit around the venue, where the magic will be happening! If you were to imagine a true wonderland for kids, what would it look like? If you were thinking of a venue similar to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory (from Roald Dahl's famous child's story Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), then you are spot on! Well, almost. Because our venu
Are you a person who takes anything you hear with a pinch of salt? How easily do you accept the status quo? Do you question everything and everyone around you? Then, International Skeptics Day on October 13th is the holiday for you!

That is why today today we celebrate The International Curious Events Day! A great day to take the time with your kids to discover the answers to all life's pressing "Why", "Where", "When"-questions. Today is the day, when we focus on the inexplicable, baffling and peculiar mysteries of the w
Tonight is a special night. Tonight we celebrate our closest celestial neighbor - the Moon: The International Observe the Moon Night. I remember, as a child, I would beg mum and dad to let me go out into the back yard and observe the Moon and entire Milky Way. Armed with a pair of binoculars (didn't help much, but still...), I would lay sprawled across the lawn, listening to the cicadas, counting the number of stars and imagining how amazing it must be to be an astronaut!

Isn't it incredible? One moment they are the cheekiest creatures on the face of the planet, the next they are making you laugh and smile. Children have superpowers. Thanks to these superpowers it is almost impossible to stay angry at a youngster :)
Their inquisitive eyes, smiley toothless faces, their innocence, sense of wonder, hand motions to "the isty bitsy spider"...the list goes on! We adults are wired to love, protect and teach our little monsters - the tiny little hum
