Excel in UPPER Secondary English Comprehension & Summary Writing


Even after doing secondary school comprehension for 2 years, many students still struggle with the “Why” and figurative language questions at the Upper Secondary level. In this workshop, you will acquire techniques and simple-to-apply methods to answer these tricky questions.  You will also discover 6 most common type of writing structure used in comprehension passages and learn how to look for clues within them to answer these questions effectively. 

While Summary Writing may seem intimidating and difficult, it is in fact one of the easiest components to score in with the use of the right techniques. In this workshop, our experienced English teacher will equip you with rephrasing and word replacement techniques to ensure that you are able to craft a summary effectively. You will learn how to track ideas visually for a better understanding, and discover the essential concepts for every good summary  (such as leaving out irrelevant points) to ensure scoring the maximum marks. Hands-on practice of writing summaries of varying difficulties will be provided to expose you to a variety of texts types and apply what you have learnt in the workshop.
