  1. An ability to speak and be understood,
  2. An ability to listen and understand.

Individuals with strong language power possess the ability to communicate effectively in a social environment

Mathematics helps the child to understand the world and provide an effective way of building mental discipline. Math encourages logical reasoning, critical thinking, creative thinking, abstract or spatial thinking, problem-solving ability, and even effective communication skills.

Science education is one of the most important subjects in school due to its relevance to students’ lives and the universally applicable problem-solving and critical thinking skills it uses and to develop the child’s mindset.
