Frequently Asked Questions

Well, both! It is up to you, really. However, for students who live in Kuala Lumpur (or Klang Valley in general) and are able to travel to Mon't Kiara, where our academy is located, we highly encourage you to join our offline lessons—they are simply much more interactive and therefore effective. 

Again, both! However, it should be noted here that all our offline classes are conducted in groups of up to and not more than 10 students. Meanwhile, online classes are typically one-to-one, but sometimes also grouped. At Y1, we are of the opinion that group classes are far more effective as they allow interaction not only between the student and the teacher, but more importantly also between classmates, thus enabling crowdlearning.

Upon selecting which subject or course to take, the student will sit for a placement test so that the teacher will be able to gauge their level before assigning which class to join. Often, the placement test is conducted on the same day as the trial lesson (see Q4 below).

Why yes! We're currently running a promotion: RM49 per trial class, no matter the level and subject. As mentioned above (see Q3), the trial often comes right before or after the placement test (which also costs RM49). Together, it costs RM98 to attend the trial lesson and sit for the placement test.

No, not really. Our experience tells us that each subject contains pretty much the same learning content and outcome across curricula. Therefore, we accept both international and national students. Take upper secondary for instance; it does not matter whether you are pursuing an international curriculum (Cambridge/Edexcel IGCSE, IB MYP 4-5, etc.) or the national curriculum (SPM in Malaysia). However, there will be differences in terms of exam preparation; thus, that is conducted on a case-by-case basis.

Very much so! In fact, we are most proud of the fact that every teacher at Y1 is the best at what they do. The scope and depth as well as the practical aspects of their knowledge transcend significantly beyond what is required of the syllabus, which in turn enables them to go much deeper into the subject matter—and in so doing we are able to spark real interest rather than be limited by the syllabus. In addition, our teachers are some of the most passionate educators, which explains why every one of our students are highly engaged both in and outside the classroom.

Not at the moment, unfortunately. However, this is a feature we will look into as our academy expands in the near future. Stay tuned!

There's not a single answer to this very popular question. But if you ask us, go for first language whenever possible, not only because it better prepares the student for tertiary education later (FLE differs from ESL in that the former focuses additionally on inference and thus develops critical thinking abilities and analytical skills), but also simply because English is too important a language to treat as a side quest!

There are two kinds of offline classes at Y1. On the one hand, the first runs continuously, meaning new students may enroll at any point in time. On the other hand, the second kind runs by batches.
