Help! P2 Higher Chinese

Postby mumof2kids2010 » Thu Nov 18, 2010 10:58 pm

Hi,

Parents who have kids studying P2 Higher Chinese, please help and advise. :?:

My girl is selected to study higher Chinese nest year P2 as she got quite high for her P1 Chinese. However, I'm not very sure of what they will be learning for higher Chinese as compared to the normal Chinese. Could someone advise of this? Will it be a lot more difficult for Higher Chinese as compared to the normal one? If possible, could someone point me to some resources where I can download some Higher Chinese tests/worksheets?

I'm quite worried that she will not be able to cope with it.

:thankyou:

For a start you can try check out the assessment books at Popular bookshops that are meant for P2 Higher Chinese.. ...then easier to 'agar' the standard.. :wink:

My boy is studying higher chinese since P1. The only difference is to study more words than normal chinese. You can buy the higher chinese guide book from popular which shows which are the must know words to learn. Hope it helps.

Thanks for your reply.

So, if she starts from P2, we will need to get her to learn the additional words now, right? Are the additional must know words for P1 (higher chinese) all in the chinese character cards (zi bao bao)? If yes, I will use the cards during the holidays.

Sorry to ask so many questions... :oops:

I think whether all the words in the zi bao bao are used depends on the teacher. These cards are meant to supplement their current textbook and may not necessarily be used (if at all). But if you can teach, why not? Actually many schools have already started higher chinese in P1 and the difference between HMT and normal chinese is not really that huge for lower primary, just additional words to be learned. IMO, the major difference comes in P5.

I think it's good for your girl to study higher Chinese because some of the top sec school like Nanyang girls sec, CHIJ St Nicholas Girls' Sec need the Higher Chinese result when PSLE.
It's not very difficult for kids to study higher Chinese in lower primary. 识读字 are almost same, but there are more识写字 in higher Chinese than in normal Chinese. Teach your kids Chinese characters as many as possible, this is very important!
