So, you would like to learn more about our beginner’s course.

We will start from the chess board to learn the chess language such as files, ranks, diagonals, squares, the centre, corner squares, black and white squares and chess notation.

 

Next, we will learn the name of the pieces, how they move, their values at the beginning of the game, how they control the space, how to carry our simple maneuvers with the pieces, and how our pieces help out each other.

 

Now we are ready to learn about attacking and capturing opponent’s pieces and pawns, we will learn to identify safe places for our pieces, further practice on controlling the space on the chess board and piece maneuvering.

 

At this point, we will learn about a piece that is often overlooked and forgotten as it has a low value but it has a magic power that no other piece does and if successful it can change the outcome of the game.

This is a small and insignificant pawn. We will look at how the pawns move, attack and defend each other and other pieces and of course, about their magic power.

 

Having mastered attack, we will take a look at defending and learn that there are four different ways of defending: capturing the attacker, moving away to a safe place, blocking the attack with another piece or pawn and protection. To understand protection, we will have to master the value of pieces in the previous lessons.

We will now introduce a concept of check, an attack on the king, our most important pieces, the one that I call “priceless”, and also how to get out of a check safely.

 

As we now know what a check is, we will learn about check mating the opponent, which is the objective of the game. This will be followed by learning about what castling is and the rules associated with this special move, the only move where two pieces move at the same time.

This is a short summary of some of the syllabus for the Beginners.
