Kumon Programs Used Worldwide

At Kumon we simultaneously nurture a high level of
academic ability as well as the ability
to self-learn with our math and language worksheets

The Kumon worksheets used around the world are all based on the same approach. That is, they allow students to steadily advance to higher level material by letting all students begin from a point that they can do comfortably, regardless of their age or grade at school, and by making it possible for each student to study at the “just-right” level, wherein the burden on students is increased little by little. Our worksheet developers at Kumon are constantly learning from children in an effort to improve our current worksheet lineup and also to develop new and better worksheets to provide Kumon students with the best possible learning materials.

Native Language Programs

Native Language Programs

The Kumon native language programs set out to enable learners to develop an advanced level of reading ability through self-learning. Students are first exposed to both new and familiar vocabulary. They then learn letters, and in some cases characters, in the context of words and also new words in the context of sentences. Next students develop their understanding of simple sentences, then paragraphs, and systematically advance to the practice of summarizing passages in their own words, which increases their reading comprehension ability. Ultimately, students get to the point where they are able to read classic and contemporary literary masterpieces from around the world, and think critically about the messages they contain. At Kumon we also make use of the Kumon Recommended Reading List (RRL), a list of books from various genres listed in order of difficulty, to help promote reading among students. The native language programs are provided in seven different languages for study around the world.

Kumon Penmanship and Calligraphy

not available in Philippines

Kumon Penmanship and Calligraphy consists of four self-learning programs that are designed to enable students to write correctly and beautifully in Japanese. Students start out by learning how to use a pencil, pen or brush properly. They then systematically develop their writing skills by first practicing drawing lines, then tracing and copying individual letters and characters, and finally writing entire sentences and passages.
As they learn, students also master principles of writing that can be applied to writing letters and characters that they do not study on the worksheets. As a result, students naturally gain the ability to write more beautifully in daily life. Kumon Penmanship and Calligraphy’s programs are: Pen Penmanship, Pencil Penmanship, Pen Calligraphy and Brush Calligraphy.
