Hi this is Pushkal Bodla & Lohith Chandra Bodla …
Before we start telling our experience about abacus we would like to pen down few things about us. We are just like any ordinary kids who always enjoy Indoor/outdoor activities (i.e. cycling, swimming, badminton are few of our favourites) but gave little time to study. During our study time, our parents have observed our enthusiasm in maths and thought to improve our skills, speed and accuracy in whatever we do. They then joined us in Abacus classes. It was 2 1/2 years ago, we were 9 & 8 years old kids when our journey took to a new way of studying in maths.
We still remember when our parents took to abacus demo class, we didn’t expect that day will be such a long day of 2 1/2 years of fun learning. We initially started doing math on fingers using the abacus technique, which meant we could count up to 99 instead of 10. Later as we improved, we started using the abacus tool, which then we visualised and started doing harder sums in our head. The fun has just begun (!). When we moved into higher levels the work got harder and harder but at some levels which we like to call them ‘Checkpoint Levels’ we became really frustrated and wanted to quit but if it wasn’t for Dr. Rashmi Mantri and the whole abacus team’s encouragement we wouldn’t be able to complete the course and also we wouldn’t be where we are now.
Abacus didn’t only improve us in math, but helped us to excel in studies and improved our mental ability to solve the problems. The abacus team pushes people into the right path and makes sure that each and every kid reaches a certain level of aptness before moving them up to the next levels.
It would be unfair not to mention about our parents who have taken utmost care and made us to achieve all abacus levels on time. Without their support and commitment we wouldn’t be able to complete the course on time. Mum and dad we love you and thanks for everything you have given to us. Hope we have made our parents proud and hoping to achieve many more goals in future. Thank you once again for Super maths for giving this wonderful opportunity.
