A Primary 4 English book was randomly flipped and given to two K2 students, Lynette Teo and Keziah Lam, to complete. Within 10 minutes, both girls did 10 questions and Keziah scored 8 questions while Lynette scored 5.

Thereafter, they were tested verbally on the wrong questions as well as spelling of words which they didn’t know. Both were able to answer fluently and even spell the words backwards with no mistake, becoming second nature to them.
