Kumon supporting World Book Day and National Year of Reading

Kumon, a franchise providing supplementary education, has announced that it not only actively supported World Book Day, which took place on 6th March, but is also helping to promote 2008 as the second National Year of Reading. Both initiatives aim to encourage people – especially children – to read. According to Kumon, its English programme not only focuses on improving children’s reading ability but also on developing a love of reading.

Mike John, Kumon UK’s English Project Manager, commented on these initiatives saying, “We promote World Book Day to students and think the National Year of Reading is a fantastic idea because we firmly believe that the continued development of reading helps students achieve their potential in many academic subjects, as well as developing their creative minds for life-long success.”

The Kumon organisation was founded in Japan in 1958. 50 years on, the franchise network now stretches over 45 countries. According to the company, over 4 million children study Kumon across the world. The franchise provides the children it teaches with courses in reading, writing and arithmetic. The courses not only aim to make them more proficient in the subject but also, the company says, to help them become self-reliant, independent learners who are able to realise their potential throughout secondary school and beyond.
