The English curriculum for students today places a greater emphasis on the oral communication skills of students. They are expected to be confident and fluent speakers of the English language.
The PSLE English Oral Examination takes up a large percentage of the overall English results. Our programme focuses on helping students become confident communicators. We also enable students to elaborate on any stimulus by teaching them methodologies that help them organise their thoughts so that they can respond in a logical and systematic manner.
The allocation of marks for the PSLE Oral component constitutes 15% of the total score. If you break down the time taken versus the marks allocated for the PSLE English examination, you will find that the Oral component takes up the highest allocation, in terms of percentage allocated per minute of examination time – as high as 3.0% per minute for Oral, versus 0.3% to 0.5% per minute for the other papers.
Our PSLE English Oral Programme prepares students in:
› Learning to read with fluency, flow and emotion
[Stimulus Based Conversation]
› Speaking on a stimulus without being prompted
› Carrying on a conversation with confidence
