Why Kelly Yang Project
A KYP education is centred upon the real-world skill your child needs most to succeed: flawless spoken and written communication in English. Schools are preoccupied with standardized testing and the allure of STEM subjects. KYP knows that the single most important skill your child can learn is to communicate effectively. We focus on critical thinking, writing training, and confident public speaking. We teach these skills through a global curriculum designed by a best-selling, award-winning author - and make it fun!
KYP was founded in 2005. We offer 14 years of experience working with students across Asia, Europe, and North America. KYP is a globally recognized brand of excellence.
1. Think Globally
Students learn how to analyze the elements that drive current events, and how to speak and write about those elements with confidence and clarity. We tackle these touch social and cultural issues through fun, interactive class debates and discussions.
2. Write Elegantly
Students sharpen their critical reasoning ability and essay writing abilities through course work. Once mastering the fundamentals of essay writing, students learn the techniques and elements of a wide repertoire of academic writing, preparing them for secondary school writing and higher level coursework.
3. Debate Clearly
Debate transforms young people into global people, from shy students into powerful speakers. It merges five essential skills: public speaking, critical thinking, logical analysis, world issue awareness and personal organization.

FOUNDER, THE KELLY YANG PROJECT
Why Kelly Yang Project
The most distinctively thing about KYP is that all of our teachers are trained in The Kelly Yang Methodology, a unique give-point system designed to foster a love of learning and achieve holistic academic success. Our experienced teachers love to work with kids of all ages. Thanks to their dynamic, interactive teaching style, our classes are fun! Unlike other centres that "teach to the test," we empower students to think creatively, critically and globally - skills that are essential for success in today's world.
Understanding international issues is an essential life skill in the 21st century. To prepare for and compete in the modern workplace, we believe it is imperative that students understand global issues and current events early on. This empowers our students to take stake in changing the world around them. We never say to our students, "this issue is too complicated" or "we'll talk about it when you're older". We challenge and trust our students to handle real-word issues - and to think up real-world solutions in each lesson.
