Ashley has been at Phonics Land since she was three years old. She is now six years old at ISF school and one of the most advanced reader/ writer in her class. Her English teacher was so surprised by her level of English and has told me she is at least one year ahead of her peers! She loves to go to Phonics Land! All friends that I have recommended to the Centre have been astonishing results in less than two months! We all love the Phonics Land method!
We are happy that Divyana has made great progress in her phonics learning and has gained much confidence in her reading abilities. She is eager to try, which for us, is more important than perfection of a skill. She is very happy to go to class, which speaks lots to her teacher. Thank you for supporting her, Phonicsland!

Quentin has been joining Phonics Land since October 2015. Only 6 months in Phonics Land, Quentin is now able to write all alphabets and also be able to read simple books! We are so amazed with Quentin’s progress and we love the way teacher is teaching…everything was story-based which makes it very easy for a little kid to memorize the sounds of each letter…and all the super fun activities that teacher introduced makes Quentin learns quickly through play! We love Phonics Land! Love, Eva (Quentin’s Mommy)

I am the parent of Marcus Li, who shows characteristics of ADHD Syndrome / Asperger’s Syndrome. Marcus first met Miss Belinda at the centre, not willing to communicate nor interact with other children. He was always happy in his own little world. This was why his learning was partially hindered. We knew that Miss Belinda’s background had not prepared her to teach children with special needs. However, she went out and bought books and did lots of research on how to teach children with Asperger’s Syndrome and very often shared with us her new findings. She had often carried long conversations with my husband, trying to understand more about the unique behaviors my son had and she tried very hard to look for ways that she could help Marcus perform better in her classroom. She always told us that children with autism are actually super human, and that they are all very blessed because they are born with a super brain. Her words were always positive and encouraging and we appreciate it a lot. I don’t know where her inner strength comes from or what keeps her going, for she never gives up trying and helping. Miss Belinda cares for my child as if he was her own. Marcus ‘s reading and writing and his understanding of “concepts” have improved immensely under Miss Belinda’s teaching and care. Marcus has learned how to put all his “scattered” thoughts together, and learned how to interact with other children more. This was way beyond Miss Belinda’s job duties and my husband and I are both very grateful at how very hard she had to work to achieve it. She has watched Marcus develop and grow into a confident boy with much better speaking and social skills. I sincerely thank Miss Belinda for her patience and heart and perseverance.

Teacher in PLM is an awesome. Now Jeslyn can read books all by herself. It is very impressive to see her improvement on her reading skills. About a year ago, she only knew a few simple words by memory. Thank you Phonicsland. It makes reading & writing fun, exciting and alive.

Letter of Recommendation Before joining Phonics Land, Curtis could not pronounce words properly and clearly. He has been studying in Phonics Land for 4 years now. Within 8 lessons, he was able to read and had begin then to even develop a love for reading. Now a super confident reader, he continues to study at Phonics Land to further advance his English abilities. Phonics Land has a great curriculum and method where the students learn words not by sight or memory. Thank you to all the teacher’s support for Curtis and I wish for future academic excellence!

Letter of Recommendation Aidan has been studying at Phonics Land for 7 years now. Before attending classes at Phonics Land, Aidan had struggled with ‘delayed’ reading and writing skills. As a parent, this had worried me a lot. However, thanks to the hard work of all the teachers at Phonics Land, Aidan is now 1 year ahead in his english spelling and reading skills in comparison to his classmates.
Aidan’s mother (Braemar Hill))
Letter of Recommendation Adrian has been learning at Phonics Land ever since he was 2.5 years old. The curriculum at Phonics Land suits his learning style very well. Instead of pure memorisation, the teachers teach him English through phonics. I think this is à more effective way for students to learn English. Adrian , at his 11 th year at Phonicsland, is now a confident learner and continues to strive for excellence through Phonics Land’s efforts. I would like to thank all the teachers who have provided unconditional support for him.

“We really like Phonics Land and Kieran has made tremendous progress in the past few months. We will continue to recommend Phonics Land to all our friends”

“The teacher is satisfied with his phonics progress. He is able to recognize many sounds…Thanks for helping Tristan. I think he has improved a lot.”
Tristan’s Mommy (Victoria)
“Thank you so much for the patience and teaching Quentin. We are lucky to have started with you early…and Quentin really learn a lot from you. And has progressed so much!”
Both girls are constantly asking when they can see Teacher again in PLM. It has been a breeze supervising their homework or revising their work as Teacher has made the lessons very fun and easy for the girls to remember their fundamentals with play. I have since heard from Teacher Parent sessions or how pleased there are with Kaycee and Leia’s progress at school. Phonics is hard to teach and learn but Teacher in PLM has made it so easy and fun! Thank you, Teacher!
Kaycee and Lei’s parents (ISF)
Adrian loves Phonicsland very much. Every week he’s very eager to go to class and he is very keen to do the assignments at home. In just about 2 months since he first started at Phonicsland, he has learned to blend and read many words by himself. His reading has got a lot stronger, and he is turning into a little confident reader! He has always enjoyed looking through books, and now with his reading ability, he can understand the content better. Thank you Teacher in PLM for teaching Adrian patiently and building up his confidence! ☺

Theo has been learning phonics from Phonics Land since he was 4. We are so amazed by what he achieved so far. From only knowing the alphabets, now he is a confident reader. Theo’s teachers at school also commented that he shows great interests in phonics and spelling. We are very pleased with Phonics Land’s efforts in building such a great foundation for English Learning for Theo and will not hesitate to recommend this wonderful learning center to our friends. The only complaint is that there is always a very long waiting list for the classes, so Theo could only start at 4 years old.
Theo’s parents (Braemar Hill)
Marcus has been with Phonicsland for two years already and has become an independent reader with the help from the teachers. Especially in the past six months, he has shown an increasing interest in reading and his written work also improved. Phonicsland is able to connect with the child and help them to develop their interest in reading and writing from their interested subjects, which in our case was very effective. Only one thing which I would like to do a bit more is to have more communication with the centre and his teacher to be updated continuously on his progress.
Marcus’s parents (HKIS)
Thank you for all your hard work. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything you’ve done to help Sherene improve her spelling and writing skill. The impact of your help is so significant. She loves your class and she has achieved a lot. I know you put a lot of time and effort into them and I hope you know how much I appreciate it.

Miles has been with Phonics Land for over a year now. The achievements have been incredible for a three – year old. Miles started from picking up a pencil and learning the sounds of the alphabets to now being able to read two- syllable words and short phrases. Miles’ Teacher is very patient and spends time after every class to update us on Miles’ progress and share with us how to reinforce the learning at home. We highly recommend Phonics Land to other parents.
Milesn’s parents (ISF)
I take this opportunity to thank you for your teaching and patience to my daughter. Emma is not only learning the phonics in PLMand also can read a book independently. My husband and I are so happy that Emma is enjoying to study in your campus and it is helping our daughter believe that phonic has fun. Thank you for your hard work. We truly appreciate it!

When Eugene first started with Phonics Land, he was a little easily intimidated by new challenges and with receiving not-so-good feedback. PLM Teacher has patiently helped Eugene to overcome much of his difficulties and rebuild his foundation. Now he is willing to try compounding sounds of words new to him and has become increasingly confident. Teacher has also thoughtfully tweaked her approach, to click with how Eugene could most effectively learn. Teacher always has a genuine cheerful smile which makes Eugene look forward to another class in Phonicsland. Lastly, thanks for her enthusiastic teaching!
Eugene’s parents (ISF)
Letter of Recommendation My kids, Allen, Allie and Amanda, all joined Phonics Land at the age of 2.5. Alton now 11, has been in Phonics Land for 10 years. I know a lot of HK parents like to switch around from one center to the next, but I have never thought about my kids switching to another learning center. Phonics Land provides everything necessary and has a great learning environment. Their curriculum is set so that the students learn vocabulary through sounds rather than pure memory. This way of learning has allowed my kids to maintain at the top of the class in school and I am very proud of them. I would like to thank all the teachers who have provided unconditional support to them. Mrs Lam

哲哲在Phonics Land 學習Phonics接近三個月了。這3個月來，哲哲Phonics 方面的知識突飛猛進，不論是認識英文字母的音、拼讀或書寫，都有很大的進步，超出我們的期望。最難得的是哲哲對學習Phonics 興趣濃厚，在家主動做練習、不時自己拼讀，並主動「教導」家人。 哲哲的進步實在要歸功於PLM 老師，老師有愛心、耐性及專業的Phonics 老師，在她的教導下，哲哲的Phonics 進步神速。難得的是她不但對哲哲循循善誘，對於我這位問題家長也不厭其煩地耐心講解，令我可以配合哲哲學習Phonics。謝謝老師！
自從1年多前成為Phonics Land 學員，Jay的閱讀，寫作和詞彙量方面都進步神速，而且尤其喜愛讀老師每星期為他挑選的英文書呢! 如果Phonics Land可以額外舉辦更多活動(如寫作比賽，串字比賽等)就更好了!
Classes with Teacher Belinda are fun and interactive. My kids greatly improved their pronunciation, intonation, grammar and learn new vocabulary words by discussing interesting topics. Teacher Belinda also has a wonderful personality and is very kind-hearted and friendly. She is very professional and well-prepared for classes. Can’t thank her enough for her great teaching and for my kids!
Miles enjoys his class at Phonics Land. Within 4 months since he started, he has already picked up a lot- from properly holding a pencil, to identifying the vowels, to reading 3-letter words on his own. Teacher demonstrates great patience and care when working with Miles and this is reflected in Miles’ willingness to come to class. Keep it up!
Phonics Land has been a key part of Carrie-Anne’s English acquisition. Teacher Belinda was amazing in getting the children interested and able to read. Within a short period, Carrie-Anne was able to sound the letters, blend them, read words to new reading and comprehending chapter books. She is always reading. I attribute her love and strength in English to an early start at Phonics Land where she built a strong foundation. Thank you Teacher Belinda.

After attending private classes with Ms Belinda we noticed a significant change in Christian’s expanded vocabulary and his interest in reading. He is always sounding out words on the street and in everyday life. We are extremely impressed with the Phonics Land program!

I am always happy to read Chesney’s weekly diary and found that she is able to use “past tense” to describe a lot of things. Certainly her writing skills have a lot to improve but the fact that she is willing to write means a lot to us. Keep it up Chesney!

Even though Tiffany has only been with Phonics Land for half a year, we have seen her pronunciation abilities improved vastly. We like the idea of setting a few pages of homework for Tiffany to do at home so that we can get an idea of her progress.

My elder son learnt here 8 years ago. Hes got very good reading and spoken skills and got English subject prizes during primary school. My younger son Jayden, who is now 4 years old. Phonics Land is the first place he learnt English. The teachers not only taught them Phonics & reading skills but more importantly they can arose their interest in English and they find that English learning is a great fun. Thank you and I highly recomment Phonics Land to you!
Jayden’s parents (Braemar Hill)
Thank you for creating an environment of enthusiasm for learning, appreciation for growing and room for making mistakes ( & messes ☺) along the way for Jamie.

Edna had been in this program for 6 months. A very distinct improvement in her is the motivation to do homeworks! She was able to start and do on her own. I think the methods and ways of teaching her is great. She was always looking forward to go to Phonics land.

My daughter joined Phonics Land program about a year ago. She’s made a good progress with Miss Yolanda and Miss Paula. The program employs a variety of materials and interesting methods to teach. I also like the small group teaching and the briefing at the end of each session so that parents can do the necessary follow-up at home. My daughter is 4 years old now. She is able to read simple stories at ease!
Charlotte’s parents (St. Paul’s)
Hillary enjoys phonics and learning at Phonicsland is a joyful experience which is helping Hillary to build her self confidence in reading, being curious to all the signals/posters/banners everywhere in the city! More importantly Hillary has started to enjoy writing to express herself and showing “Thank You” in words.
Hillary’s parents (ISF)
Sophie has studied at Phonics Land for one year and showed obvious improvement in both writing and speaking English. The most important thing is she shows confidence and great interest in reading English story book now. Thank you so much for Teacher Jade who did an excellent job and Sophie loves her so much.
Sophie’s parents (St. Paul’s)
It was a pleasant surprise to us when we’ve first heard Brayden reading on English book on his own while pronouncing all the words properly. This includes words that he has never seen before. This would not happen without the teachings from Phonics Land. Big thank you to teachers and staff in Phonics Land!
Brayden’s parents (Braemar Hill)
Brea has been at Phonics Land for 7 months now and I can proudly say that her English has improved quite impressively during this time. I was quite hesitant at first, as Phonics Land does give out a lot of homework to the levels and I was afraid that would be an unnecessary load added on to her already demanding school work. However, Brea seems to be enjoying her homework and the heavy load end up strengthening what she has learnt in class and her progress is remarkable.
Ethan has been studying in Phonics Land since he was three. His English has improved a lot in just over a year. The fun activities used by the teachers make him enjoy the class every week. I really appreciate all the wonderful work the teachers have done and thank for their enthusiasm.

Letter of Recommendation I am the mother of Chloe Chan. Chloe has been studying at Phonics Land for 6 years now and I am extremely happy with the drastic results that I am seeing. Chloe was a way below average student in her class before she joined Phonics Land. She was not willing to speak in English nor had the motivation to study this language and now I am proud of say that she is one of the best students in her English class! I want to recommend and thank all the teachers that have taught in the past 6 years for the effort and time they have placed in teaching Chloe. Chloe came to Phonicsland, a shy and inconfidence girl. With her teacher’s encouragement and patience, Chloe is now very confident when she spells and reads. I must also thank all the teachers for assisting Chloe with her school work something that is outside of their curriculum.
Mother of Chloe (ISF)
Letter of Recommendation Nathaniel has been studying at Phonics Land for 5 years. This is the longest we have put Nate in a learning center. We are so amazed by his achievements, being in the TOP of the class in school now, Nate’s English skills are well beyond his year. I have recommended the PLM method to all my mommy friends parents who were looking for an english learning center, and were always always thanked for the referral. I highly recommend this curriculum, you will not have to switch between learning centers.
