Asia Spelling Cup builds a dream stage

Asia Spelling Cup has been successfully held five times. With the help of Qooco Kids Spoken English App, the organizing committee helps to realize self-growth of each child through technological means and tailors the "spelling course" for the Asia Spelling Cup contestants so that children can prepare for the competition easily over time.
