1. Start Writing a Journal
The thinking process of students in Singapore is one of the issues in PSLE Chinese composition writing.
To assist students in Singapore to have good PSLE Chinese composition writing skills, we must teach them how to think in the Chinese language instead of in the English language then translate it. When they put their thoughts on paper in Chinese, they will be able to write a more effective flow of Chinese phrases.
Every student in Singapore is encouraged to write a journal in which they only write in Chinese. In order to encourage Chinese composition writing to improve, students can start by writing a daily journal of one to two sentences. Parents also can communicate to their children in Chinese about their thoughts to boost their Chinese composition writing.
2. Read Chinese Materials
Reading and writing are two abilities that are inextricably linked. Students who enjoy reading will automatically be able to write properly and employ proper Chinese sentence structure, grammar, and idioms.
Students won’t know what correct Chinese composition writing looks like if they don’t read enough. It is also difficult for your children to write well in their PSLE Chinese Composition test.
Reading can assist your children in gaining a better understanding of the Chinese language. It will help them to remember the proper Chinese sentence structure and improve their Chinese composition writing style. Even if your children do not become great writers , it will make it much easier for them to remember and implement good Chinese phrases.
3. Prepare a Chinese Vocabulary and Sentence Bank
To improve PSLE Chinese composition, students in Singapore are encouraged to establish a regularly updated Chinese vocabulary bank for Chinese composition writing. The vocabulary bank can comprise various categories such as weather, family, and activities.
When students are writing a Chinese essay, they can refer to their word bank, which will save them time browsing through a textbook or worksheets for the particular Chinese characters or sentences. This also promotes familiarisation and memory recall, making it easier for students to recall these important Chinese phrases during their Chinese composition examinations.
Weekly Chinese spelling tests or dictation also can be used in conjunction with these Chinese vocabulary banks to help boost and enhance student’s memory.
