Hi

Anyone know which book better?
Seem to be from different publisher

If you are simply looking for videos for viewing and practicing purposes then either/both of these books work. If you'll referring to notes/pointers in answering conversational questions, then the ones I would recommend the ones shared on this post: https://www.kiasuparents.com/kiasu/foru ... o#p1880497 :wink:

For Mainstream students, these are P6 topics, yet to be taught

For Gep students, not sure if by end of P5, have already covered these topics

Dear parents, do you have any recommendations for model CL composition books that I can buy for my child. He is very weak in CL Compo.

Use a ruler to guide yourself, go down row by row, the entire passage, hunt for the phrase that is closest to what each of the question, is asking for. The answer lies inside one of those paragraphs. Start from beginning of paragraph, until the last paragraph, inside the entire Chinese Comprehension passage.

you must also be very familiar with the Chinese vocabulary, inside the P5 and P6 "Shou che".
Once you are familiar, it helps a lot.

Start with your 2019 P5 Chinese vocabulary.
Total, how many chapters are there ?
around 18 to 20 chapters ?
During this Nov / Dec school holiday, spend time wisely.

Everyday, get your child to revise 3 chapters of Chinese vocab.

1)
Highlight those vocab from the P5 "Shou che", that seems tough ("chim") to him, or those don't quite understand.

2)
Besides "shou che" also
Turn to the back of both his (5A, 5B) Standard Chinese P5 MOE text book, revise all those Frequently encountered commonly used Chinese vocab inside both books.

3)
Revise all his entire year of P5 Chinese tingxie, given by his school

4)
Besides tingxie, also need to
revise all his "kao ca" Chinese test worksheets on vocab, given by his school

5)
After you finish revision with 2019 P5 Chinese entire year, repeat the same, with 2018 P4 syllabus

1 week got 5 working days.
So, within 1 week, he can finish (complete) revising (5 x 3) = 15 chapters, of Chinese vocabulary
Do this consistently.
Child will show improvement, eventually : shouldn't be losing 4 marks, with those above 2 qns.

It is unfamiliarity, with (P5 / P6 / P4) Chinese vocabulary, lack of confidence, that is the stumbling block, root of his problem (analysis)

First and foremost, read these two questions first before reading the actual passage.

Write down the meanings of these two phrases in ENGLISH, so you know fully well what they mean in a language you are most comfortable with.

Then read the passage.

If you haven't find the suitable phrases in the passage after the first reading. Skip to do the rest of the questions first. Reason being, if you have completed all the rest of the questions, it is likely that you would have read each line of the passage at least 2-4 times already. You would have known how the storyline flows, the character emotions, their actions etc like watching a movie. Then from the English meanings, you could make a good guess which part of the story it comes about.

Even if the above fails, you fall back to reading line-by-line to identify the phrases. But because you know the storyline so much better, you can speed read to find them quicker.

Note that after you found the the 1st question phrase, the 2nd question phrase would obviously appear after the 1st phrase, and vice versa.

Some phrases are similar and gives you a clue, but these occurrences seem rare,
e.g. 迫切 vs 急切, 遗忘vs 淡忘, 陶醉vs心醉
