Measures of Understanding and Readability
In linguistics, the Gunning fog index measures the readability of English writing. The index estimates the years of formal education needed to understand the text on a first reading. A fog index of 12 requires the reading level of a U.S. high school senior (around 18 years old). The test was developed by Robert Gunning, an American businessman, in 1952. The fog index is commonly used to confirm that text can be read easily by the intended audience. Texts for a wide audience generally need a fog index less than 12. Our Gunning FOG index is designed for grade 10 upwards to university and beyond.

Further, we train the student by making use of natural techniques to invoke the Alpha waves of the brain, to increase from the normal rate of 8 - 10, to 15 and even 17 waves per second. What this means, is that the memory is enhanced by about 70% and concentration is effective immediately. This is where we excel by making use of memory training, mind filing and recall techniques with a backup system of mind mapping. In conclusion, the student is taught the art of presentations for those unexpected questions when limited time is given for preparation of answers.
