If any parent is to ask how a child can prepare for the sentence synthesis section, the first area I will ask him or her to focus on is definitely direct and indirect speech questions.
This type of question has appeared in almost every PSLE and various schools' examinations. There is definitely reason for us to be well-prepared for it.
Whether you would like to give your child a head start to direct to indirect speech transformation, or are simply looking to revise some vital concepts, this webinar will help you walk away with a clearer idea of how to tackle such questions.
Little ones and parents love us
But don't take our word for it

The visual text comprehension component takes up 8 marks in Booklet A of Paper 2 and is an area which some children will describe as a piece of cake! After all, it is a multiple choice question section, it should be simple, right? Why is it that children are not able to score full marks then?
Let us find out whether your child is making some common errors that are preventing them from scoring and the steps that they can take to clinch those 8 marks!
Is grammar really about what sounds right? No, it is not! An answer for a question should not be chosen simply because it sounds correct. Instead, it is important to find the helping words (or the clues!) in a sentence that will point you to the answer.
However, many children are unsure of what these "helping words" refer to and what they should be highlighting to confirm their answers. In today's webinar, we will look at how to find these helping words for questions testing on subject-verb agreement in the grammar MCQ section.
Helping words are there to point children to the answer and most importantly, the highlighted words justify their choice. Join us!
