Am especially thankful for his tutor for going through the topic of friendship with him the night before, as well as Xiao laoshi from @chatteringkids who have been patiently guiding him all this time
Especially since he had come a long way from only uttering his first word at 22 months, to finally completing his first ever major examination on verbal ability
I love how it's super fuss free to communicate our needs with the admin people, and the extremely encouraging and patient teacher J11 had. Will be continuing with @chatteringkids for J10. I don't get any benefit if you sign up for the free trial

Before the real exam, I want to know how ready is he for the upcoming oral test and how improve it if he is not ready.
So, recently I let him tried 𝕄𝕆𝔼 𝕊𝕥𝕚𝕞𝕦𝕝𝕒𝕥𝕖𝕕 𝕆𝕣𝕒𝕝 𝔼𝕩𝕒𝕞 from @chatteringkids . He was so enjoying the whole lesson. The teachers is also very friendly, make him relax to answer the questions. I also received the report after lesson.

I made the mistake of not conversing frequently in Mandarin to my kids when they were very young. As a result, they have slight difficulty in holding dialogues in Mandarin fluently. As we know, the Chinese Oral weightage is 25% and my kids usually do not score well in this area.
I signed up for one of my P5 girls. Overall, the teacher was very encouraging and the 1 to 1 lesson is really helpful. My girl has more chances to speak up and be corrected as compared to a class setting.

Recently, I signed up for lesson for my P5 boy who turn to P6 next year. So, before I prepare him for PSLE, I want to know how good is he in english, not only composition, but also his oral and communication skills.. since oral component is 15% of the total english exam score!
My honest review, the teacher was very encouraging and my opinion is 1 for 1 lesson is better than a class setting. My son was so enjoyed the class.

Not only English, I also signed up for Chinese lesson. Do you know that Chinese oral weightage is 25% of total Chinese exam score?!?
It really worries me! As we are not from a Chinese speaking family. I really can't help him other than find him the best platform/teacher who can help him. I believe having 1-1 online class is better than class settings.

Overall she enjoys the class, otherwise she would say NO to me if I ask her to attend more lessons. I suggested to her to get more practice and she said ok.

It was an interesting Chinese oral and communication class with @chatteringkids yesterday. I had the opportunity to watch how Dylan performed for the picture description and indeed, he was struggling quite a bit.The teacher taking Dylan was very gentle and patient. She would prompt Dylan only whenever needed and gave him lots of time to come up with the words or sentences. Overall, the class was very well planned out and the content suitable for his level.

The lesson starts with oral reading, student gets to read first before teacher corrects his mistakes and teach him the correct way to do it. Followed by 看图说话，which is the most difficult. Teacher prompts him by asking him questions and afterwards provide him with the model answer. Later she made him tell the story again without the answer to make sure he understands it well.
