  • The Singapore Chinese Exam Method™

    Background

    Having marked O Level Chinese exam papers and examined consecutive years of O Level Oral Exam as a MOE school teacher, Inspiren CEO Teacher Jaye is highly familiar with the Secondary school syllabus.

     

    Being Singapore-born, Jaye is also effectively bilingual and can explain words, idioms and passages clearly in both languages.

     

    Through guiding students from various backgrounds, Jaye found that the most common problem amongst students is the serious lack of vocab and grammar skills, and this is something that most exam drilling and tuition, cannot help in as students only keep doing practice papers without improving their language standards overall. Most of them still cannot comprehend the passages and questions in the exam paper.

     

    Jaye felt the urgent and essential need to build a strong foundation in a child's Chinese in terms of language and vocab use, before embarking on practices.

     

    Some topics in our Singapore Chinese Exam Method™ include:

    Names of Places and Countries (In Chinese) |

    Action words and position phrases (How to say it right in Chinese) |

    Adverbs (Word/phrase-joining in Chinese) |

    Speaking vs Writing (Differences in wording/phrasing) |

    Chinese characters (How to recognise and remember better) |

    Strokes and sizes (How to write Chinese characters the right way) |

    Reading and comprehending |

    Prose and story construction |

    Logical thinking and comprehension |

    Tackling Cloze (Words with similar meanings/characters) |

    Functional and argumentative writing |

    Oral presentation and reasoning skills |

    Vocabulary practice (Based on required school curriculum)

     

     

    新加坡华文考试方程式

    作为前MOE学校教师,并多次参与O水准试卷批改,以及O水准口试考核,Inspire人总裁Jaye老师对学校教材和考试范围有很深的认识。

     

    作为土生土长的新加坡人,Jaye老师当然也精通双语,能够有效地用中英文向学生解释词语、成语、篇章等内容。

     

    教学经验中,Jaye老师发现很多孩子在词汇量及组建句子能力方面严重缺乏,而这是一般地补习及试卷练习没办法解决的。因为在反复的练习中,学生的整体语文能力并没有提高。他们多数仍旧看不懂试卷里的篇章和题目。

     

    Jaye老师觉得,一定要先给学生打好语文及词汇的基础,再进行练习才有效。

     

    课程的宗旨包括:

    ✔母语式理解华文词汇与表达 ✔能自主学习新词汇及有效阅读 ✔能自信地进行口头与书面表达 ✔掌握回答阅读理解题目的技巧及方法

     

    课程内容包括:

    地方名称 | 方位表达 | 副词 | 说与写的不同 | 认字 | 笔划 | 篇章理解与逻辑思维能力 | 故事构建及文字书写 | 词汇分辨与综合填空 | 实用文表达 | 口试及意见发表能力 | 议论文综合能力 | 词汇练习 (根据学校教学内容)

  • Chinese Exam Method™ Classes

  • Inspiren's ACS student gets distinction for Chinese for the first time.

    Chinese Exam Group Training Method

    1. Interactive component :

    We all know textbooks today are so different from those of yester-years. Today's education landscape also emphasises a lot on collaborative learning and peer sharing. Your child will most likely land in a job that requires him to work with many stakeholders and colleagues, and present in front of a large audience, rather than a solo work project. Groupwork skills and interactive engagement are essential skills that not only help learning, but also help in their future careers.

     

    2. Creativity :

    What makes a child gain more knowledge and experience in the world? Hearing from peers and learning from others. While the teacher can do all the talking and cite all the examples, hearing it from someone of the same age group helps give the child a sense of relation and is something he can easily link and associate with. The brainstorming of ideas in the group sessions help spark creative juices and new ideas in their work of writing and even speaking.

     

    3. Less stress on the student :

    Would you rather your child feel 'pressurised to perform' or 'prove himself' during every 1-1 tuition lesson, or would you rather him go and 'enjoy a lesson in a group and have fun while learning'? All qualified educators would recommend the latter as a more effective and holistic approach to educating and acquiring knowledge and wisdom. Imagine yourself attending a Korean or Arabic lesson on your own, versus having a whole class to chat and mix and share learning insights with - the answer should be obvious!

     

    4. Leadership :

    21st century workplaces are all about leadership. So many corporate relationships turn sour due to lack of leadership effectiveness; and so many companies fail as a result of poor corporate management. A child who can learn to facilitate, support and lead, is way ahead of others in terms of personal and corporate qualities. And these can only be honed through the frequent exercise of such qualities in none other than the classroom.

     

    5. Attentiveness :

    We all know home is a place for shelter and rest - and alas, it is also a place for leisure and play! Sometimes, the home can just be a little too 'comfortable' to get children into the 'mood' for learning. An external envrionment that is conducive facilitates the learning process by setting the child's mind and soul right, and he has less 'lackadaisical' tendency.

     

    6: Peer learning and support :

    This is by far the most important and relevant reason why group lessons are better than individual 1-1 lessons. Studies have shown that learning in a group, especially one with varying learning levels and abilities, helps all children in the class learn better: "Mixed-level classes can help everyone learn more. The lower-level learners will be pushed more than if they were alone, and the higher-level learners can solidify their knowledge by helping others."

     

    7: Quality guarantee and zero agency fees :

    Most tuition agencies engage 1-1 tutors because it is easier to facilitate and they get to earn a lucrative 50% off the first month of a tutor's tuition fees. That is a substantial sum of money, and in fact gives the agency an incentive to help parents find more 1-1 tutors, even if it means parents keep changing tutors. Also as a result, tutors' quality is hard to control and monitor as agencies work on a one-off basis with these tutors. Whereas, for centre/group lessons, the teaching staff would need to guard his teaching and the centre is entirely responsible and accountable of teaching quality. Group lessons are also generally priced lower than 1-1.
