Hello everyone! Happy 2018! Hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday. For the first blogpost of the year, I’d like to spotlight on a particular level - Primary Five.

The Primary Five year is in my opinion, one of the most challenging years in a child’s Primary school life. The start of the year for any Primary Five student is likely to be the start of a stressful time - intellectually, physically and emotionally.

However, fret not! The aim of this blogpost is not to stress parents and students out but rather to inform you of the changes as your child transits to Primary Five so that you are aware of what to expect.

Going on holiday doesn’t necessarily mean the learning stops though. It just means the learning gets even more fun as you hop on that plane, immerse yourself in a different culture and take in the sights and sounds of another country. Apart from the lure of endless inflight entertainment and late night suppers with family, there is certainly a lot for children to look out for while they travel.

Previously, I wrote about how one of the questions in the Vocabulary MCQ section of Paper 2 tests your knowledge of common English idioms, and how you go about answering such a question.
In this follow-up post, I am going to recommend to you the S.A.T. (Super.Awesome.Terrific) way to conquer these common idioms.

Did you hear about the taxi that exploded at Buona Vista station? How about President Trump’s supposed visit to North Korea? Which of these are facts? And which are, to use a now oft-quoted term by a certain administration, “alternative facts”? In the world we live in today, the processing of information is not always so straightforward because of how, with the help of social media, almost anybody can be the one to break the latest news on a subject of interest. This is where critical thinking becomes so important and is a skill many English examinations seek to test, especially in the upper levels. Read on to find out how we can use the humble newspaper (or news app) to hone that skill and many more.

For today’s post, I will be showing you a little more in-depth on how to get to the answer. What do we need to highlight for the different types of comprehension questions? Why do we need to highlight these words?
Let's try and explain these questions today and focus on the following question types:
1. Factual
2. Inference
3. Sequencing
4. Vocabulary in Context

This week, I am going to give you five tips that will hopefully aid you in your English exam revision. I can almost see the look of surprise on your faces because my students often tell me, “What is there to revise for? Just go in and hope for the best!” whenever I tell them to revise for their English tests or exams. While there is some truth in what they say - English is unlike Science or History where you need to remember facts - there are still some things you can do before your test or exam. Below, I have listed 5 things you can do to prepare for an English paper!

Figurative language is used in typical ways by writers to convey meaning in a simple yet sophisticated manner. What is figurative language? Figurative language are words or phrases which are different from the literal meaning of the words. For example, “no point crying over spilled milk” does not really refer to a person who is crying because he has spilled some milk! It actually means not useful feeling sorry about something that has already happened.

I am sure you have been in this situation before: your teacher gives you a continuous writing piece to complete. You read the question and look at the pictures. You decide on the picture you want to use in your writing and pick up your pen. You start writing.
Stop! You are missing an important pre-writing step - planning your composition. I know many students find planning a chore and given a choice, they prefer to start writing straightaway. However, in this post, I will try to convince you why planning is important and should be carried out before the actual writing.

For this week, I am going to focus on the use of direct speech in writing, specifically on using more vivid verbs and adding an action or facial expression to the speech. I know that most of you must have been told to use direct speech in your compositions to make the action more interesting and the characters more real. However, some of you tend to write like this:
“You need to leave now,” Mary said.
So what can you do? Try following these two steps here!
