Preparing and Studying for O-Level English

Lil' but Mighty Secondary School English - Wordstruck

It goes without saying that O Level English is one of the trickiest subjects to prepare for. Students are often overwhelmed by the numerous components tested, and are often stumped as to how to improve at each of them. For many students, especially those who struggle with the language, they resign themselves to not preparing for O Level English at all, believing that their low standard of English is fixed and immutable and will thus always translate to Bs or Cs.

Besides the pragmatic reason of giving yourself an edge to enrol in a tertiary education of your choosing, here’s some reasons we believe you should prioritise preparing well for your O Level English journey:

  • Mastering O Level English components will prepare you for future, real-world responsibilities. Situational Writing trains you to write emails to your future employers, and articles for those of you budding journalists out there. The basics of Expository Writing can aid you in writing clear research papers for university. Carrying out all those Editing practices will make you a whiz at spotting your own mistakes in future. And Oral will train you to speak confidently and fluently during your future interviews!

  • Exploring O Level English components can help you to ignite a possible passion for English and/or other interests! When you encounter fascinating, moving comprehension Narrative passages, perhaps that can inspire you to look for the book which the passage came from, and spark a love for reading. Or, when you tackle a mind-blowing Non-Narrative passage about unique topics like the history of personality tests or the art of Japanese sushi making, you can discover a new interest you never knew you had! Our passages at Wordstruck are similarly carefully chosen to inspire such bursts of interest and critical thinking, so you can look forward to reading them!

  • Lastly, O Level English also encourages your critical thinking. Inference questions in comprehension require you to read between the lines and think beyond what is simply explicitly told to you. Expository writing topics encourage you to think in-depth about various topics as you construct a nuanced argument. Learning how to think critically for yourself is definitely an essential skill in today’s discourse-driven world which can sometimes drown you with too much information!

So what are you waiting for? Why not give our enjoyable and enlightening lessons at Wordstruck a try today?

O-level English: Let's all be exam-smart​

How do we tackle the O-Level English Paper: Strategies & Analysis

The transition from primary school English to secondary school English is one to be handled with thought and careful planning. With English being taught at an advanced level, it is even more crucial now than before to employ a structured approach that equips our students with the relevant examination strategies and techniques to sit for the school examinations and O-Level English in the future. In order for our students to be crystal clear about the requirements, they go through exercises to analyse the passages and questions posed. Be it in writing, comprehension or oral, Lil’ but Mighty students are ready to achieve their best each and every single time. As a good English tuition centre for secondary school students, we are confident in our methods.

Our aim as an O-level English Tuition Centre: Grow a generation of change agents equipped with techniques to handle the O-level English assessment and communication skills to create an impact wherever they are planted.

O-Level English: Fewer Components, but Deeper Learning and Broader Perspectives

With seemingly fewer components in O-Level English, it can be easy to assume that O-level English is simpler. However, our teachers are aware of the academic requirements and are prepared to deepen learning in these areas. Through discussions on critical issues with our thematic approach, students will broaden their perspectives and open their eyes to the authentic impact English has in their lives.

English is not learnt for assessment. It is a tool for ideation and a way of life.

I was already struggling after my PSLE, so in Secondary 1, I thought about which tuition centre I should join. I’ve many friends that recommended LBM and truly I must say that it is the best. Special thanks to Ms Hui Jun and Ms Kwan for helping me to improve my English.”
