We’re constantly tinkering, experimenting with every aspect of the Accella experience to ensure that our students are able to achieve the greatest possible mastery of English. While our teaching methodologies are always evolving, however, a few of our practices stretch back virtually unchanged for more than a decade, to the early years of Accella. It’s through the observance of one of these traditions, and thanks to his own diligence, that aspiring scientist Li S.S. (pictured above) has recently become the proud new owner of That’s Life!, an intriguingly-designed pop-up book in Templar Publishing’s Super Science line.
During the final lessons of each year, we conclude every class with our winter holiday lucky draw. S.S. and the young people in the collage below are just some of our 2015 winners!
Check back soon for more news and views from us here at Accella! In the meantime, we wish all of our students and their families, as well as the Hong Kong community at large, a happy and healthy festive season. See you in 2016!
P.S. At this late date, with the holidays bearing down on us, you’ve almost certainly discharged your seasonal gift-giving responsibilities. Nevertheless, if you find yourself in search of a surefire, guaranteed-to-be-loved present for a very special, science-inclined young person, you ought to check out the volumes in Templar’s Super Science series, written by Tom Adams and captivatingly illustrated by Thomas Flintham. FYI: Templar’s listing is incomplete. If you or your child have enjoyed either or both of the books shown on that page (Molecule Mayhem and Feel the Force), you’ll almost certainly want That’s Life!. Be sure to keep an eye out for the next installment in the series, Super Science: Experiments, which is slated to go on sale in the first quarter of the coming year. If you a Flintham fix before March 2016, though, we have good news! Templar’s Marvellous Maths (aka Mesmerizing Math for the U.S. market), which is available now, is the fruit of a collaboration between Flintham and author Jonathan Litton, has the same aesthetic as the Super Science books, and is similarly wonderful.
