the foundation of learning.
Our aim is not to teach techniques for passing exams, but to foster life skills that children can apply throughout their lives.
Kumon focuses on the development of overall basic academic ability.
Develop problem solving skills required in society
Math is a subject that requires an accumulation of knowledge through practice. While enhancing their calculation skills, students also cultivate their mathematical analysis and logical thinking abilities which will be indispensable to their lives in the future. This leads them to develop the ability to solve various problems that they will face after entering the real world.
Features of math program
The international version of the Kumon math program consists of 20 levels (from Level 6A to Level O) and five elective levels, making a total of 4,420 worksheets. The worksheets focus on the development of strong calculation skills and, by avoiding all unrelated concepts, aim to allow students to advance as quickly as possible on their own to high school math.
Kumon also offers language programs for both native and foreign language learners.
GoalDevelop reading comprehension skills
In the native language programs, we aim to improve students' reading comprehension skills and nurture an interest in reading, both of which enable them to read widely and confidently. With strong reading comprehension skills and through a wide range of reading experiences, we foster students' sense to feel more deeply and their ability to think.
Features of native language programs
The native language programs begin by enriching students' vocabulary and instructing basic reading skills. Students go on to learn about sentence structure, paragraph building, summarization and critical reading. They develop their reading comprehension skills through the Kumon Method of summarization. This embodies the natural process through which students read a passage and rearrange each sentence in their own minds.
GoalDevelop reading comprehension skills while enhancing listening skills
At Kumon, beyond the communication skills needed for greetings, students develop the ability to accurately comprehend a variety of text while enhancing their listening skills.
Features of foreign language programs
The foreign language programs offer students exposure to their target language on a daily basis while allowing them to acquire high-level reading comprehension and listening skills. Through the carefully designed small steps in the worksheets, students also learn not only to write and pronounce the words and sounds of the language, but also to read and understand texts written in that language.
Kumon's Japanese program is available for foreign nationals residing in Japan.
