PSLE Chinese Essay-writing Intensive Course
With less than six months leading up to the Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE), our educators here at Seimpi Education understand that time is of the essence for our Primary Six students. Therefore, we have come up with a 2 day intensive course specially for them this June to strengthen their conceptualisation and consolidation processes during their study break. Our 2 day course will follow the PSLE format closely to familiarise our students with the exam, as well to mentally prepare them to tackle the actual examinations this coming September. These 2 days will be extremely pivotal in sharpening our students' skills in terms of grasping exam-smart answering techniques, and in exposing them to the standards the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) expects of them in 2019.
For Normal Chinese, essays are categorised into two question types, namely picture-based and situational writing. For the former, our teachers will guide our students closely in deciphering the five given pictures, thereafter prompting them to brainstorm on logical yet creative storylines as a form of essay planning. At the same time, they will ensure that our students are capable of using appropriate vocabulary to produce quality pieces of writing, which will definitely boost their performance in the graded language component.
Likewise for Higher Chinese, essays are similarly categorised into situational and continuous writing. For situational writing, our teachers place much emphasis on pre-essay planning, where our students will be taught to identify crucial keywords from the essay questions. From there, they will then be trained to conceptualize ideas and story outlines effectively using the 5W1H (who, what, when, where, why, how) approach. Our teachers will coach our students to utilise fast and effective ways to draft essay outlines, and to adequately apply appropriate vocabulary to perfect their writing.
We strongly believe that through this intensive June holiday intensive course, your child will be able to get a better grasp of essay-writing techniques and confidently ace their PSLE this September with flying colours.
