We are excited to announce the opening of our newest branch of Midbrain Activation, in the beautiful Vung Tau city of Vietnam.
Every parent wants the very best for their children. In pursuit of that goal, parents make enormous sacrifices and go to great lengths.
Here is what a mother of two boys said:
“ Our education system has failed to deliver results. Our children study at school from morning till evening. Then we send them to tuition classes for help. Children study till late at night. They study during the week ends. They have no social life. They have no time to enjoy their childhood.... "

“Learning how to learn is life’s most important skill” - Professor Tony Buzan –
Some dictionaries define "Education" as "to teach knowledge and skills." However, the original meaning of this word in Latin is "to pull out the innate ability". - Professor Shichida –
There are two different Latin roots of the English word "education." They are "educare," which means to train or to mold, and "educere," meaning to lead out. While the two meanings are quite different, they are both represented in the word "education."
The two definitions form the basis for many of the vociferous debates about education today. The opposing sides often use the same word to denote two very different concepts. One side uses education to mean the preservation and passing down of knowledge and the shaping of youths in the image of their parents. ( Educare).
The other side sees education as preparing a new generation for the changes that are to come--readying them to create solutions to problems yet unknown. ( EDUCERE). The Latin word ‘ Educere’ means to draw out, because we draw out the values which are inherent in a human being, rather than impose anything on children from outside.
Educare calls for rote memorization and becoming good workers. Educere requires questioning, thinking, and creating.
To further complicate matters, some groups expect schooling to fulfill both functions, but allow only those activities promoting educare to be used.
Parents and teachers have a responsibility to pull out the original large potential capabilities any child was born with to the fullest extent through education. Let's focus on the long-term future, not an immediate one. The future of the world depends on the children of today.
Practically, educere refers to all educational Programmes of teaching aimed at helping humanity draw out the qualities of goodness inherent in man, and to understand the inner makeup of a human being in relation to the outer physical world, in order to keep a perfect balance.
Educare recognizes that life is interdependent and that we share the same building blocks with everything that surrounds us. This will lead to the understanding that caring exclusively for ourselves, believing we are isolated and separate is an illusion that can only lead to disaster.
The purpose of educare is to correct this imbalance.
Educere therefore refers to a whole system of education which provides practical knowledge for educating for life, and not just for earning a living.
Educare recognizes that unity in multiplicity is the ultimate goal of education, resulting in a world which is a better place to live in, for people today, and for future generations.
We give the students the best tools so that they can develop themselves thereby achieve success and happiness in life .
