    Mummies and daddies with children attending their classes, would you share your views/comments? Did it benefit your child? Is it better to start as young as possible? Thanks.

    anyone know what's the diff between Shichida Method and I-genius? Heard that they got into a legal tussle recently and thus I suspect that they use almost the same method. I sent my 5 year old gal to SM when she was 1 year old and stayed with them for 1.5 yrs. It was very good for my gal as this really helps to set up a solid foundation for her in learning but I was told that the results vary for different kids.

    I would be sending my newborn son too but wanted to know more about I-Genius as well.

    Last week I went to the kidz academy at suntec, the igenius programmer shared some of the course materials with me, its kind of like memory game, training of your brain response thru games, like those mind mapping, speed reading, memory course that the adult take, looks quite interesting.

    I think the war is between Shichida and little neuro tree, read somewhere from internet forum that is like LNT is last time fr Shichida, most staffs from there.

    Think among all, Igenius quite frenly, but LNT cheapest, not sure whether the effect how. Any parents tried any of them? what the feedback? My girl is 4.5, thinking of signing her up for one of them.

    For Shichida and LNT, the payment is per term (3m), for Igenius, by modules, think first module is 24 lessons, about $1900, quite X, that's why we still considering.........

    yeah i'm also keen to know if they're really helpful n actual examples of how yr kids may have improved after attending these courses. i keep hearing abt all these right brain classes n have read up a bit abt them, but i don't personally know anyone who sends their kids there, so i haven't heard any 'real' examples yet. Are they really worth the $?

    i'm thinking of signing my boy up but my hubby thinks it's not necessary. so i'm trying to get more feedback first! thanks!! :)

    Right brain training can be done at home. You should read up on right brain training activities & try them out at home. Materials can be easily made at home or bought. 15minutes a day is better than those classes (btw, for those classes, you still need to practise with your child daily!)

    Classes are beneficial because students get to interact with other children. This will enhance their social skills. Also, parents might not be equipped with the right techniques to teach their child as trainers at iGenius go through weekly training. iGenius also has in-house designers so materials made at iGenius are exclusive.

    With regards to doing home practice, it would definitely be beneficial to do it daily but parents might not have the time to do so. Thus, sending their children for classes will help.

    DazzlingDaphne, seems like you are 'selling' iGenius?

    I'm not saying it's not good but just sharing with other parents that it is possible to offer the same for their kids if they do not have the time or the financial means to send their kids to such an expensive course. Not every family earns alot.

    That being said, there are many books in Popular and National Library on right brain training, available in both English and Mandarin. Parents spending time reading up and getting materials is priceless. The bonding with their child is something that money can't buy.

    I do agree that right brain training is good, but for parents who can't afford the expensive classes, they can really do it at home on their own if they wish to.

    If your point is to 'sell' your program at iGenius then they right way to do it would be to start a thread under 'Business' section of the forum and tell us about the programs you offer, why are you different from other centres and the prices. Interested parents will definitely contact you directly from there.

    Hi StonSton,

    I am just helping out to post the relevant information in this forum as i happened to chance upon the title 'i-genius' created by others.

    Thank you for enlightening me on how to go about posting the relevant information in the relevant section of this forum.

    Have a good day! :)
