It is really amazing to see their enthusiasm toward learning the abacus and how they put aside time everyday to do some tables. The dedication they have shown towards the training is also unbelievable. Many of them have taken the abacus with them when they went on holiday so that they could keep up when they came back. The sessions have also been useful for them to get to know more people around the area as we have participants who came from West Bridgford, Cotgrave, Kinoulton, and Keyworth.
