Hi sky,

10 minutes ago, I just called the Supplier, at Telephone 6742-7322. He said today Friday (21 Dec 2018), his bookshop is still open. I asked him if he got stock of that Secondary 1 Textbook and Workbook, that I need. He replied "Yes, still got stock". He said today, his bookshop closing 5.30 pm. So after lunch later, I will go down and buy from him (supplier). His address is

Blk 47 Sims Place, #01-181 Singapore 380047

@phtthp. ¿Español? Expensive... But it's good to start some form of self-learning in the upper primary, as a pastime(?)

Hi there, I think to play safe, you can get the yellow textbook (book 1) and the hiragana and katakana workbooks. those will be used for the first 2 months. for activity book 1, you can consider buying at a later date. reading and listening comprehension books aren’t really used in class, they’re mostly for home based learning. hope this helps! :smile:

Apparently, only those not circled in my following pics are frequently used. The one circled red not used & circled yellow being hardly used.

Hope it helps in yr decision & budget.
