Primary English Oral
Wish there were a little voice to tell you what to say?
You can be your own little voice!
I don’t have the gift of the gab.
That is wrong! Reading and conversational skills can be learnt and improved on. You just need to know which areas to take note of and work on. Let us start by bringing out the chatterbox that is in you.
Here’s What Your Child Will Receive When He/She Joins Our Primary English Oral online course
P4 to P6
Workbook (Contains 12 SBC Practices covering a range of topics and question types with full model answers using our RASE strategy)
Is your child facing any of the following during the Primary English Oral examination?
Problem #1: Unsure of why he/she is not scoring for reading
Problem #2: Unsure of how to begin answering during the Stimulus-Based Conversation
Problem #3: Stuck after answering a few lines
Problem #4: Answer seemed disorganised and all over the place
Problem #5: Unsure of when to say what
Problem #6: Giving a lot of irrelevant details for an answer
Speech is a thought that is put into words. You need to start by knowing what to think.
Reading and Stimulus... What?
It's time to RASE™ to the challenge!
Stimulus-based conversation is one of the changes in the new PSLE format in 2015 and many children are stumbled by it.
Compared to the previous format of picture description, there is no fixed formula for scoring as you are not supposed to merely describe what you see (e.g. You may remember asking your older children to describe the picture in a clockwise/anti-clockwise direction!).
Aligned with the new PSLE English Oral format
For the new format, the aim is for the children and the examiners to have a conversation, an exchange of words that is somewhat natural. Hence, description alone is not enough, it does not provide for a conversation. Instead, the ability to share your opinions, thoughts and experiences in relation to the picture (stimulus) and topic is valued. This is why we need to bring out the chatterboxes in you.
A structured approach to craft your answers in the stimulus-based conversation section
To some children, speaking to a stranger about his day or life is not a natural thing to do. However, if you are able to have a structured plan about how to think and what to say, doesn’t this make the task a lot less daunting?
We want to help you do just that.
As we continue to work with our pupils on perfecting their oral skills, we are also perfecting our oral strategies. Do you know the difference between how to respond to Q1 and Q2/3 in the Stimulus Based Conversation? If you’re already enrolled in Lil’ Chatterbox, check out the latest updates now!

The Write Recipe : A.I.M.

“Like all parents who would like to support their children in their learning journey and revision, we found that the course has provided us with a helpful framework and enough strategies to reinforce the key points learnt in school and during tuition.”
“I think that the tips on how to do well for the listening comprehension were great and useful. Now I am more confident when it comes to listening comprehension. The questions asked were tricky, which made me think more about my answers before writing them down. Overall, I think the Easy Listening online course is good and definitely helpful!”

Most importantly, the tips are easy to follow. We are glad that Kayla has gained insights into the editing component through the course as these tips are not taught in school.”
