Yes you're right. If a child is strong in Normal Chinese, just pay attention in class, do their best during exams good enough. But formats and techniques for exam is very different from Normal Chinese. If the school trains the students, that should suffice. Or else, need to pick it up from tutors. That's why I don't conduct regular HCL lessons, only Holiday HCL courses to brush up.
