English Paper 1 assessment/guide for Sec Students

Postby gerberas » Sat Dec 14, 2013 9:23 pm

Hi,
I have not been able to find a good/suitable assessment book/guide for English Paper 1 (which is the situational writing and compo) for Secondary school (both upper and lower).
Could someone kindly recommend ?
Thanks !

Hi Udon, not a parent but a tutor here, would definitely recommend you to get a Lower Sec guide book for your child. Pri and Sec situational writing are different, there are a lot more rules, styles and formats to memorise for Sec. So I'd suggest picking one that's meant for Lower Sec to slowly introduce him/her to Sec situational writing. When he/she is more familiar with it, you can get the higher level books to better his/her communication skills.

Can recommend you to check out the following books:
- http://www.popular.com.sg/jsp/product/p ... d001=81433 (Longman Situational Writing for Lower Sec)
- http://www.popular.com.sg/jsp/product/p ... d001=98059 (Lower Secondary Situational Writing Handbook) (very straightforward style, easy to understand at first read but probably need other supplement to score well)
