You may find it puzzling that your child constantly scores an average mark for their oral examination despite having a glib tongue and the ability to recognise most difficult words. There could be many underlying problems that you as a parent, would not notice in your daily conversations with your child.ReadingThe problems that students face when it comes to the reading component can be categorised into three different situations:–PaceMany students have adopted the habit of reading either too fast and missing out on reading certain words and ignoring punctuations.–IntonationIntonation refers to the rise and fall of the voice when speaking. Most students fall into the category of reading in a monotonous or a staccato tone especially in situations whereby they are hesitant about the pronunciation of the words.–ArticulationExtra points are awarded for students who are able to capture the nuances of the individual sounds within a word. The delivery of the words must not sound exaggerated.Stimulus-Based ConversationThis is one component that leaves many students stumped. It can be especially nerve-wrecking for them as it requires quite a bit of spontaneity when the teacher throws you a question during the examination. Once again, problems that the students face fall into three categories.–Run-of-the-mill answersStudents tend to think that there should always be a ‘right answer’. The truth is there is no right or wrong answer. However, examiners will look at how sound your responses are and if you are able to bring a fresh point of view to the conversation.–Too brief responses/ lack of personal opinions and experience sharingIf pupils find that they are constantly fielded questions from the examiners, that is when they have to know that they are in the danger zone. The examiners would not be able to award you marks if your responses are too short for them to analyse and contemplate upon.– Usage of SinglishThis is the hardest habit to break. Appropriate English has to be used during the oral examination. Too often, students find themselves lapsing into colloquial English midway through the conversation.There are ways to tackle these issues!Start your child early and sign up for our Primary English Oral Booster Workshop to get them well-prepped for what’s to come!
