It has been 5 months since our children are enrolled in a homeschool learning center and they are extremely enjoying their experience. They love seeing their friends every school day and having a grand time socializing. I think this is the part they missed when we were in Thailand since they really didn’t have friends who can understand them 100% due to language barriers. In terms of academics, my daughter is adjusting well with IGCSE curriculum. The only subject where she is having a tough time is Malay since it’s her first time being exposed to the language. Before she took the IGCSE curriculum, she did an assessment test and they placed her in grade 8 which is actually a year ahead for her age. But I guess the pacing is ok and she’s doing well. As for my younger child, he is the one who had to make a lot of adjustments. It has been quite difficult homeschooling him as he needed a lot of prodding and encouragement for him to do his work. And since I’m his mom, he tended to be very complacent with me up to the point of me getting exasperated. That was actually one of the ‘signs’ for me to consider sending him to a homeschool center with his sister. As for our daughter, earlier on we have already decided to send her to a center to prepare her for IGCSE exams. So, this is where we are in our ‘journey’ for now. We still relish our homeschool days, but even if our kids are in a ‘school’ now, we still do a lot of fun learning activities with our kids, just like we did during our homeschool… because as they say, learning never ends. Oh, and this reminds me to look for a guitar center near me for guitar classes for my daughter.
