Re: How to improve Chinese Composition?

“一个风和日丽的下午,小明……” this is what a typical introduction of a Chinese composition will look like. Any Chinese teacher in Singapore would have agreed that this is the most common introduction seen in Compositions, and “小明” has indeed survived over many decades, even generations. But wait, is there only one way to start a compo? Definitely not.
Many students have difficulties in writing a composition, shivers run down their spines when we talk about writing composition. Even teachers would have a hard time marking, being bombarded by many “Xiao Mings” and almost every piece of writing is about the same, which possibly explain why students often receive their scripts after weeks.
Composition writing should begin with drafting a planner, which many students think that it is not necessary as the planner is not being graded. However, as the saying goes, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”, one should spend at least 5 to 10 minutes to do the planning, deciding the characters in the story, either first person pronoun or third person pronoun, the theme of the story, development of the story twist, solution etc.
Introduction:
There are various ways to start a composition, weather, time, dialogue, sound, flashback, environment, characters, songs etc.
Describing a person:
Our characters in the composition should not be a “stickman”, we should create all our characters with flesh and come alive, by applying various techniques to describe, such as using speech, feelings, thoughts etc.
Cohesiveness:
A common problem that we often see in students’ composition, especially picture composition, is that all 6 pictures are not gel together properly. Every paragraph seems like a short story. The problem lies in the lack of Transitional devices in the paragraph. Transitional devices are words or phrases that help carry a thought from one paragraph to another.
Twist
In order for a composition to stand out, the twist is important. Good twist helps to propel the story to climax, adding in the element of surprise, avoiding predictability is the key to entice readers to read your story to the end.

3 Things to avoid in writing composition
1. “Ring……”the alarm clock rang, I realised it was just a dream.
2. Super-natural or scenes that we read in Fantasy stories
3. Ghost stories (though most people enjoy reading it)

A meal is not complete without dessert. A composition’s conclusion is equally important. This is the point where teachers grade our writing. Again, we can apply different writing techniques, rhetoric and strategies to impress our examiners.

Writing need not be a chore, if you want your child to enjoy writing, let the creativity juice flowing, think out of the box, excel in writing, or to overthrow “Xiao Mings” as the lead character, join Funtastic Junior Writers’ Workshop. http://www.funtastic.com.sg 6702 1123

要预备作文考试的学生记得‘审题’、‘扣题’。‘助词’ 缺一不可。头脑清醒,分布内容与情境,利用秘诀扣题。切记发挥人物心理活动与动作形容。祝你好运。 :rahrah:

Don't just read the textbook. My children were encouraged to read beyond the textbooks. Newspapers, newsletter, storybooks, novels are good resources, other than the 作文佳句.

看图作文的开头应该怎么写?
1. 开门见山法, 直接了当地落笔扣题。
2. 抒情揭示法。
3. 倒叙法,由眼前的情景,联想起以往的事情,引起回忆,沿着这个思路叙述往事,形成倒叙。
运用这种开头方法作文,要注意几个问题:
一是要描写眼前看到的什么事物,并给人强烈的印象;
二是要揭示看到事物包含的意义,用准确精炼的语言概括;
三是要写由此而联想什么,引出一系列的形象鲜明的记忆。
4. 地点和时间法
5. 描写景物法

不能一概而论。一些老师‘一概禁止回忆法’,一些却‘非用不可’。手法太过极端,欠缺智慧。
回忆法应该适当使用于强烈的印象事件(严重,难忘)。
使用者也得有技巧是选择勾起回忆的事物。小学生往往花太长时间开头,本末倒置,得不偿失,因小失大。 :shock:

推荐沈祖棻的一首小诗《别》,这是她的成名作。读的时候注意欣赏节奏和韵律。

《别》
我是轻轻悄悄地到来
象水面飘过一叶浮萍
我又轻轻悄悄地离开
象林中吹过一阵清风
你爱想起我就想起我
象想起一颗夏夜的星
你爱忘了我就忘了我
象忘了一个春天的梦

推荐沈先生的另一首现代诗 。这才是真正的好华文,意境优美,有节奏有韵律,所以读起来朗朗上口,满口清香。

《你来》
你来,在清晨里悄悄地来,
趁太阳还没有照上楼台;
你经过草地时不要踌躇,
小心碰掉一颗亮的露珠。
让一切的人都没有睡起,
我一个人在晓星下等你;
轻轻地告诉你昨夜的梦,
梦里有一阵落花,一阵风。
你来,在黄昏里缓缓地来,
趁晚霞还在山峰上徘徊;
你经过树林中不要留恋,
随着归鸦来到我的门前;
太阳落了也不要用灯笼,
我们正需要那一点朦胧。
这时你该为我吟一首诗,
但莫说别离,也莫说相思。
你来,在静夜里静静地来,
趁月亮还没有躲进云彩;
你经过黑径里不要害怕,
河边叫的不是鬼,是青蛙;
我们灭了灯,有的是星星,
没有人,不用怕谁来偷听;
这时你正好为我拿起琴弦,
低低弹出一段凄楚的缠绵。
