About Graceful Hands
Who Are We
Graceful Hands was founded in 2002 and is the first children’s language development school in Hong Kong to widely use NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) theory for their course development and school operations. We are also the first children’s Edutainment institute in Asia that helps students achieve the highest academic results through systematic language development programs and entertaining hobby classes. With over 15 years of exceptional experience, Graceful Hands provides renowned language development programs for students aged 1 to 12. We aim to foster a passion for English learning among children and parents by using our tailor-made teaching materials and curriculum. We keep students excited about English learning by making all of our classes unique, fun and enjoyable.
“In Our Classrooms, Children Grow With Confidence, Happiness And Energy!” It governs big and small decisions our staff and teachers make for our children.
At Graceful Hands, we believe children can build the future with creative minds, confident spirits, and graceful life values. They can learn to use their intangible yet powerful inner hands to enhance themselves and eventually change the world. Graceful Hands represents the inner power that everyone has, that is “LOVE“.
What is NLP?
NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is a method of influencing brain behavior (the “neuro” part of the phrase) through the use of language (the “linguistic” part) and other types of communication to enable a person to “recode” the way the brain responds to stimuli and manifest new and better behaviors (the “programming” part). Our Founder highlights the definition of NLP, “A model of interpersonal communication chiefly concerned with the relationship between successful patterns of behavior and patterns of thought.” NLP laid the foundation stones for the success of the development of Graceful Hands over the past many years.

What is Edutainment?
Edutainment in our classroom is a learning course designed both to educate and to entertain. It includes content that is primarily educational but has incidental entertainment value. The learning method is particularly effective for children learning a foreign language and is the most natural way children obtain knowledge, children don’t even know they are learning.
Our Corporate Color – Orange
The color orange radiates warmth and happiness, combining the physical energy and stimulation of red with the cheerfulness of yellow. To form a very stable triangle of children’s mental growth, orange will be at the top and relates to ‘gut reaction’ or our gut instincts, and creates a great partnership with the physical reaction of red and the mental reaction of yellow which are the other two angles of the mind growth triangle.
The color psychology of orange is optimistic and uplifting, rejuvenating our spirit. Orange brings spontaneity and a positive outlook on life and is a great color to use in high or low tides, keeping us motivated and helping us to look on the bright side of life.
