Fast ForWord FAQ # 1 - Will My Child Like It?

Posted by Peter Barnes on September 2, 2014 at 8:57 PM

Fast ForWord programA child using the Fast ForWord programs to improve their language skills and their memory, attention and processing speed will be presented with over 3000 individual tasks each week.

Parents often ask if their child will like the exercises enough to be motivated to complete all the exercise tasks each week.

Watch LearnFast specialist, Heidi, answer this question.

 

 

Prefer to read the video transcript? Here it is.

Interviewer:  You mentioned a little bit about the characters and the students enjoying it. Have you ever had people get bored of it? I mean is it an engaging thing to do? Is it like a game or something like that?

Heidi:  They've obviously tried to make it as entertaining as possible. Children generally enjoy trying to beat their personal best score. That's a great motivation for them. Obviously, the exercises that are not too challenging for them they'll move through quickly, and they're probably the ones they enjoy the most.

There will be some that are their least favorite because they are more difficult for them. But it's through the repetition that we'll move them through the levels more quickly.
