    Struggles of O-Level Chinese

    The O-level Chinese Language examination presents a range of hurdles for students. These challenges encompass mastering intricate characters and extensive vocabulary, developing writing skills, comprehending lengthy texts, managing time constraints, coping with stress, accessing quality learning resources, and staying motivated.

    Successfully overcoming these obstacles demands dedicated practice and effective study techniques. At EduGrove, we take the stress out of preparing for O-level Chinese exams with our O-level preparation programme. Our revolutionary methods, award-winning curriculum and dedicated teachers have a proven track record of delivering results while igniting every student’s passion for learning and more than 70% of our students have attained a distinction in their O-level Chinese exams. Annually voted as the Best Chinese Enrichment Centre in Singapore, we succeed in helping students attain fluency in the Chinese language because they are always fully immersed in a language-rich environment.

    Our Approach

    In our O-level Chinese preparation programme, we emphasise analytical comprehension skills through core texts, teaching students to deduce answers from passages and approach literature critically. We provide practical techniques to formulate thoughts, ideas, and discussion points. Our student-centric approach encourages active participation through circle time discussions and debates, where teachers facilitate learning by encouraging application of commonly tested phrases and idioms.

    Incorporating games and drama into our teaching methodology not only enhances the retention and revision of key language concepts but also leads to their practical application in everyday communication. During drama time, the keywords taught in our curriculum seamlessly find their place in the students’ daily language use. Our dramas are thoughtfully structured to focus on the commonly tested oral and composition writing topics, providing students with an opportunity to act out scenarios and express themselves from a first-person perspective. This approach encourages active participation from every student, leaving no room for passive observation or daydreaming, as everyone becomes fully engaged and an integral part of the learning experience. There are also always written exercises where the various components of the exams are practiced.

    Alignment with the MOE syllabus

    EduGrove’s curriculum closely follows the Ministry of Education’s (MOE) secondary syllabus for Chinese Language, ensuring plenty of familiarity with MOE designated keywords. In fact, our teaching team continually collates the latest exam papers from varying schools to ensure that commonly tested keywords are emphasised. Students and parents can look forward to improved results in school and feel confidently prepared for their O-level Chinese exams.

    Development of 21st Century Competencies

    We firmly believe that the educational journey goes beyond just scoring well in exams; it is about equipping students with the skills and competencies they need to thrive in their future tertiary education and adult and professional lives. In our programmes, our primary aim is to enhance your child’s Chinese language proficiency and academic achievements. However, we go a step further by recognising the significance of nurturing 21st-century skills, which are increasingly crucial in today’s ever-changing world.

    The classroom activities students engage in serve a dual purpose, boosting not only their Chinese language proficiency but also nurturing vital skills such as critical thinking, creativity, presentation abilities, and problem-solving. Our games and dramas are thoughtfully crafted to stimulate their innovation and analytical thinking capabilities. Teachers play a pivotal role as facilitators, allowing students to experience the language in action. This ensures that the knowledge and skills they acquire are not only meaningful and relevant, but most importantly, remembered in the long term.

    By prioritising both academic excellence and the development of these essential 21st century competencies, our aim is to empower students to become well-rounded individuals, ready to face the demands of their adult and professional lives with confidence and adaptability. This comprehensive approach prepares them not just for success in the classroom, but also for a future in which adaptability, creativity, and strong communication and problem-solving skills are highly valued. Together, MOE schools and parents need to work hand-in-hand to help our students develop these 21st Century Competencies.
