Dear fellow parents,

Would like to seek your advice how to improve on Chinese, oral, compre and compo in particular. DS is taking his psle next year...any idea what do markers look out for in normal Chinese and higher Chinese compo?

My DS very weak in his chinese too, until he went to a tuition centre for lesson. The teacher there recommended me to ask him to start reading his own textbook everyday for 10-15 mins, it will improve in his oral and he will learn to recognize the chinese characters. Initially he has difficulty, but as time pass by, his reading really improved and he can recognize more chinese characters. From then, Its also much easier to teach him. But must have determination to make him read every single day, if not, it wont work. =)

For compo...your son needs to memorize some 开头,成语,好词好句 and 结尾. Son attended a talk with hubby at SPH...speaker said don't use names like 小明,明华,小丽 as it is too childish. Change to 华明,丽华 for eg. If you use a 成语 like 风和日丽, remember to back up with more as this 风和日丽 is too basic for PSLE.

That's what I can remember for oral because I revised with him.

Hi Champion,
Don't say that lah...I can only remember this much.

Parents with kids going to sit for PSLE next year, do look out for a talk conducted by the principal of Han...hubby told me lots of hard sell but just ignore that and listen to the impt tips...should be around Aug.
