According to my elder boy's teacher's handout to the pupils:

1. Common mistakes in reading the passage-
a. too soft
b. extra character/missed character/wrong character
c. too slow
d. too fast

2. Requirement of reading the passage-
a. accurate
b. fluent
c. feelings

Generally what is the range of marks that is consider good enough?

Besides reading the passage, what about other components?

By the way, anyone know any place that can help to train a child on this area?thanks

P5 and P6 Chinese Oral has 3 components
1. Reading - 20 marks
2. Picture Discussion - 20 marks
3. Conversation - 10 marks

In PSLE, the student and the 2 examiners will be separated by 2 table-length apart. So you have to project your voice loud and clear so that the 2 examiners can hear you. if you are too soft and muffled, marks will be deducted.

For Picture discussion, you are expected to discuss the picture and give your own opinions along the way. I heard that if the child is not very good with this section, normally the examiner will try to prompt a bit, to make sure you can at least pass. Here, correct use of vocabulary to describe the picture is important.

The conversation topic is normally some topics related to the picture. For example. if the picture is about Children's Day celebration, the conversation topic could be "What is your favorite school celebration and why ?"

I have heard that some very excellent students score full marks for PSLE Chinese oral. No prompting needed, fluent, good opinions, good introduction and conclusion.

Hope this helps.
