Online Abacus Course in English

We have been offering Online Soroban (japanese abacus) courses since March 2020. Our motto is: The children should have more fun and learn even better!

Technological development gives us great options so that the children can learn with even more joy.

We use various digital techniques and tools that were unimaginable just a few years ago. We developed some of them especially for our online Soroban lessons.

The learning effect is far better than we initially thought. Kids quickly got used to it and enjoyed it. They even say: “I really like online lessons! Better than in the classroom … ”

… it’s worth a try 😀
