I send my child to Gateway because I want her to study in the international environment, as a stepping stone to study abroad, she will not be like a fish out of water and quickly adapt. I am quite satisfied with the subjects of the school, especially Literature - Vietnamese. When learning literature, children have chance to be expose to the project, writing essays and grouping together to study and make their own presentations. Besides, they also go for the picnic with outdoor activities, from the real activities they will better understand the content of the lessons in class and memorize so long. With self-learning, self-doing they will gradually absorb knowledge in a natural way. That is very different from other schools in which teachers read, students write and learn by heart at home, often children do not feel the work and can’t remember for long time
The first time attended the workshop "Self-study" of grade 4 students, I feel really surprised and excited with the presentation for the products of students.
It’s just the report on literature but including a variety of presentations, scripts and arrangement, students even write their own poems and stories. They confidently present their and friends’ points of views by questioning very naturally, straightforward, even focuses in many aspects. The best part is probably the acting, because it requires teamwork, working together more, self-writing, rehearsing and preparing instruments
