For S2 students,

Revise ALL the composition types we’ve done in this term. Make sure you are clear and show the correct format!

Study the 20 different sentence making patterns and try to apply in your composition tomorrow.

Question tag is always nice and easy to use. USE IT!!

Don’t forget all the phrasal verbs you’ve recited. It’s your time to show off what you’ve got!!! (Choose and recite some of them. Write them on your question paper as soon as you’ve got it. Then try to use some as you write.)

 

For S1 students,

Pay attention to the tense you chose for your whole passage.

Past Event = Past Tense!

Story = Past tense!

Your dream? ===> Past tense too!!! (:-P)

You’ve done the the 20 different sentence making patterns too. Try to apply in your composition tomorrow.

CONJUNCTIONS!! It’s the time for you to use what you’ve learnt for so many lessons. Remember making a lot of sentences out of them (because, because of, although, even though, despite, despite the fact that, in spite of, in spite of the fact that…)

How about the prepositional phrases? It’s time to show off!!!!

( To my surprise, fed up with, excited about, instead of, indifferent to, get rid of …

Choose and recite some of them. Write them on your question paper as soon as you’ve got it. Then try to use some as you write ) 

 

For both S1 & S2,

 

Review your English notebook for more vocabulary! You’ve learnt and copied so many new words during lessons every day. It’s time for you to make use of them.

 

Try to spend some time to gather all the vocabulary to make your own vocabulary list on a big piece of paper or in a Word file.

 

Divide your vocabulary list into different topic groups, like news, fashion, environment, sports …

Then indicate the form of the word, like noun, verb, adjective, adverb…  

 

Learning so much vocabulary is the preparation for your English writing. Make use of all the every single bit of your effort put in earlier on your notebook to your exam!

 

Good luck!
