junior high school students

|Abstract: ||LingoEQ, is a company born from one of our founder’s profoundly emotional experiences while teaching her junior high school students. One student’s essay about suicide made her see that her students were struggling with a lot of stress and emotional issues, and most of them did not have the proper tools to deal with the stresses they faced. She wanted to do anything in her power to help her students in Taiwan deal with their emotional burdens in a healthy manner.|
Thus the start of LingoEQ, a company that teaches junior high school students ways to manage their Emotional Intelligence (EQ) so that they can better deal with their own emotions as well as that of others. Using the medium of English, students can learn about EQ tools in a fun and interesting way. And they can use these skills that they learn in the classes throughout their lives.
Although not much is said about EQ within Taiwan, there is a growing community of educators around the world focusing on incorporating EQ into education. That is why LingoEQ would like to be a bridge to bring EQ learning around the world to the students of Taiwan. And initially some skepticism from parents of the benefits of EQ may occur. That is why LingoEQ will be doing many different things to help educate their consumers about the benefits of EQ. Including Demo days, workshops, and seminars for teachers and parents to showcase how EQ can help benefit their kids’ lives.
LingoEQ’s Mission is to help students learn how to improve their own EQ skills, so that they not only survive but thrive in life. Because they believe EQ skills can and should be taught in schools in order to give students the tools they need to live better and more fulfilling lives.
