    Workshop

    at The Learners Club

    Parents of Primary 4 and 5 students, with the SA2 happening in October, your child has two important priorities right now:

     

    1. Ace-ing their P4/P5 SA2 exams happening in the next 2 ½ months
    2. Building a strong foundation to give them a significant head-start when they enter P6.

     

    At The Learners’ Club, we’ve been sharing our insights with parents that the P4/P5 SA2 is a strong indicator of upper primary students’ proficiency in their subjects.

     

    The exam is developed specifically to gauge how strong is a child’s foundation in their upper primary syllabus, before they enter P6.

     

    This fact is overlooked quite often: Even though P6 is the PSLE year, a large portion of the P6 year is spent on revision.

     

    This means that 75% of your child’s PSLE syllabus has already been taught in P4 and P5.

     

    If a student does well for their SA2, it gives them a head-start when they enter P6, and they can focus on building their strengths instead of having to play catch-up later on.

     

    This is where A* scorers are groomed – When students enter P6 with a strong foundation, it gives them extra time for revision to nail their A*.

     

    Parents, to help your P4/P5 child ace their upcoming SA2 papers in October, plus gain a significant head-start for P6,

     

    Our team of Ex-MOE HODs and industry-leading subject heads will be sharing detailed subject analysis and tips on how to prepare for exams,

     

    Exclusively for Upper Primary (P4/P5) English/ Math/ Science/Chinese @ Bukit Timah on 31 August! 🙂

     

    Workshop Topic: Ace The P4/P5 SA2 Exam & Nurture Your Child For P6

    Date: To be advised. Pls call to check.

    Time: 4pm - 6pm

    Venue: Sime Darby Centre, #03-01H, Singapore 589472 (beside King Albert Park MRT, opposite MGS)

    For the Primary 6 students, the PSLE is only 4 months away. The students have this last stretch to improve, and what they do in this next few months is going to make a big difference in how well they will do for their PSLE.

    To help the Primary 6 students clinch their A/A* confidently, we’ll be sharing top-scorer strategies, techniques, and crucial behind-the-scenes information that will give them a strong advantage over the next few months.

    For Primary 4 and 5 students, we always emphasize to parents how important it is to build a strong foundation early. Every year, we see a clear pattern in students – those that have a strong foundation at Primary 4 and 5, they’ll go on to breeze through Primary 6 and effortlessly score top marks for their PSLE confidently.

    Unfortunately, many families only start gearing up at Primary 6 and end up feeling overwhelmed.

    To help families of Primary 4 and 5 students avoid this, we’ll be sharing our roadmap on how we nurture students to have the right attitude and equip them with necessary skills to excel all the way up to their PSLE, stress-free.

     

    During this complimentary 2-hour workshop, parents of Primary 4, 5, and 6 students will find out:

    “My daughter is only willing to go to your Chinese class!😮”

     

    “I wish we met earlier, Wai Ling. My son’s Chinese results would have been better!😅”

     

    “Wow, my kid started reading Chinese books at home.🙂”

     

    Hi parents, I’m Wai Ling, Founder and Chinese Subject Head at The Learners’ Club.

     

    Recently, parents have been giving me their heartfelt feedback on our Chinese lessons, and asking me how I’ve managed to improve their kids’ Chinese language.

     

    As parents, most of us know that to do well in Chinese, a student needs to first have an interest in the language.

     

    Only then will they be motivated to speak more Mandarin, which is a critical success factor to improve their Chinese language.

     

    However, even though we know that our kids need to speak more Mandarin, the real hurdles for parents are:

     

    • Many students dislike Chinese
    • Are  afraid of the subject, or 
    • Have no interest in it.

     

    How then do we get our children to improve in this subject quickly?

     

    Workshop Topic: From Fear To Joy: Scoring A/A* For Pri 1-5 Chinese

    Date: To be advised. Pls call to check.

    Time: 4pm - 6pm

    Venue: Sime Darby Centre, #03-01H, Singapore 589472 (beside King Albert Park MRT, opposite MGS)

     

    In our experience, the key ingredient to accelerate learning Chinese is to develop the student’s interest in the subject. A student’s interest in the subject is heavily dependent on the way the teacher engages the student, and how the lessons are conducted.

     

    Here’s the formula I’ve been using for my students

     

    1. First, my Chinese teaching team is my “secret sauce”.

    As a priority, the teaching team ensures that students find them likeable and approachable, which helps to reduce the fear and anxiety to learn Chinese. The team engages and teaches the student in such a way that they develop an interest in the subject. This ties in with our next area of focus.

     

    2. Lively, engaging Chinese lessons.

    In our lessons, we’ve been using personal life experience and drama to build rapport and interest with our students. The simplest reason our students score well for Chinese is because they enjoy our lessons and teaching.

     

    3. Next, Bilingual teaching.

    This is a big point for many students, as their Chinese teachers only speak to them in Chinese, and when they can’t understand what's being taught, they lose interest.

     

    Instead of teaching only in Chinese, we translate important parts of the lesson into English to ease understanding of key concepts for students.

     

     

    4. Lastly, Exam Focus.

    On the curriculum level, we help students accurately spot and prepare for their Chinese exam components and topics with specific exam techniques.

     

    Parents, if you’d like to meet me in person to witness and experience first-hand the above approach, and how it transforms the way your child learns Chinese, join me for an exclusive parent workshop on 01 September 2019, 4pm - 6pm at The Learners' Club!
