I am very happy to learn that my books are used by the teachers in Hwa Chong Institution! One of the top schools in Singapore.. The students have been encouraged to purchase them from their bookshop.
The O-Level English Oral book consists of 40 practices covering a wide range of topics that are commonly discussed in the oral exams. All the pictures in the book were personally taken by me; here in Singapore as well as overseas.
Another key highlight about the book is that it comes with Assessment Criteria based on MOE’s marking scheme.
The Upper Secondary – Visual Text Comprehension book is also another unique book.
All the posters and advertisements found in the book are real advertisements and posters that appear in newspapers and magazines. However due to copyright issues, I am not able to reproduce them in its original form. Hence with the help of my wife, she re-created all the graphics in the posters and advertisements. The words were re-phrased by me while retaining as much the authenticity of the articles. This enable students to understand the underlying messages in real posters and advertisements.
It is truly very encouraging that a top school appreciates the effort put in to write both books. Such recognition keeps me motivated in continuing to come up with good material to benefit our young minds!
