The 12th International Teacher’s Training started in Linyi, Shandong, the Shenmo teaching base, on April 16, 2018 and 6 teachers came from Pakistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan took part in the training. Teachers were all absorbed in the learning and made rapid progress with the help of a Kyrgyzstan professor, Dr. An’s translation. The abacus mental math contains a system of mathematical concepts and new teaching methods for the teachers who have never come into contact with the abacus. Bringing abacus mental math to their countries means providing local students with a new perspective and experience. During the training schedule, the teachers visited Shenmo Abacus Museum in Linyi and all of them were deeply shocked and attracted by the Chinese abacus culture.
It has been three years since Shenmo Education promoted the abacus mental math in Central Asian countries. The release of the Shenmo abacus mental math Russian textbooks has also provided more convenience for the Central Asian countries to learn about the abacus mental math. The Shenmo course has not only been welcomed by local parents and children, but also has been supported by local government and schools.
