Overcome Challenges within the Local Syllabus.
In Singapore, the Chinese Language syllabus is unique. When materials provided in school are not sufficient, you might look elsewhere for more information, even online. However, when looking at other Chinese Language materials online, you might discover that these online and alternate Chinese resources are generally not relevant to Singapore’s exam requirements.
While some online sample essays or questions might seemingly demonstrate higher language standards, simply regurgitating these content in exam might cause you to be penalized. Hence, it is important to master key exam strategies through local Chinese tuition.
Acquisition of Grammar and Linguistic Structures.
In Singapore, schools usually do not place emphasis on the complexities of Chinese grammar and linguistic rules. Generally, many use a rather intuitive approach to teach and learn Chinese grammar. As a result, students lack a systematic structure to acquire Chinese language. Thus, you’ll notice that many students often integrate English grammatical format into their Chinese sentences.
As a result, many Higher Chinese students face problems in 病句改正. More often than not, they’re unable to correct the errors. In order to do well in this segment, they need to be familiar with the Chinese Linguistic structures. And here, we provide essential training and practice questions in our local Chinese tuition classes. Students can definitely benefit and gain more confidence in this component and other crucial areas.
Avoid Regurgitation of Phrases.
Contrary to what many believe, essay writing is not simply a test of students’ language proficiency and usage of flowery phrases. We do not encourage extensive use of memorized key phrases (好词好句). Simply regurgitating phrases will in fact affect the general flow of your essay.
At the National exams, you will be marked stringently on how accurately you analyse the questions and structure answers according to the assigned theme. Yet, many of such important weighted attributes are not always clearly explained in schools. Hence, Jocelyn Chinese Tuition equips you with effective strategies and Thinking Models. You will thus be able to meet the stringent exam requirements, eliminating the need to rely on tedious memory work to perform optimally.
