NEW LEARNING CHESS STUDENT AND TEACHER BOOKS
IN SINHALA LANGUAGE

From Mr. Shamin Dulal Achinthaka De Moraes, Negombo Chess Academy
LearningChess distributor and Editor of the books.

In the modern world, various countries using chess as an educational tool. World Chess Federation (FIDE) also has a special commission to promote chess in education. Chess has numerous benefits related to education. Chess improves IQ, problem-solving skills, spatial skills, memory, exercise both sides of the brain, creativity, concentration planning and foresight . . .

In Sri Lanka, there are over 10,000 schools. But, chess has spread in nearly 1,000 schools only. The main reasons are less awareness about chess and the lack of chess coaches.

Kids from Sri Lanka are using the LearningChess Student Workbook

With these Sinhala Language books ‘Learning Chess Student Workbook’ and ‘Learning Chess Teacher Handbook’, I’m hoping to spread the game to many schools as possible. I hope the Teacher’s Handbook will benefit the new coaches and teachers willing to join in this task.

Active opening repertoire
The new course has arrived

Based on our users’ request, we developed a new opening course for beginners, and online players, called “Active opening repertoire“. We still recommend that first, you learn the logic behind chess and the basic moves from our Beginner course, before mastering any openings. Moreover, a solid middlegame and endgame knowledge are also essential, which you can learn from the Intermediate and Advanced courses.

However, if you want to become a successful player in today’s computerized chess world, you also need to put emphasis on your opening strategy. That is why we launched the “Active opening repertoire” in September 2020.

The author, Mr. Arne Danielsen, already captured the essence of LearningChess in the “Do you want to be a good player quickly?” title. That is: “Improve your chess effectively with high-quality chess lessons based on our interactive teaching method.

For those of our readers who do not have the opportunity to read the article (in the original Norwegian), we summarize it below. This can also help coaches and chess fans who did not have access yet but want to understand how LearningChess can support them.
