Pre-DSE Speaking (Exam-driven)

ğŸŽ“ Pre-DSE Speaking (Exam-driven)
 
Background, recommendations and objectives

👉 Key notes: The DSE English Speaking exam encompasses a very wide array of topics, and it is difficult for students to prepare for it in a short period of time. Moreover, the English speaking proficiency is the Achilles heel of Hong Kong students (including many elite students). Students get only one shot in the DSE exam. In order to achieve the 5** grade or at least "not to lose", the following two aspects are indispensable:

(1) Give yourself enough time to truly improve your English speaking proficiency

(2) familiarize yourself with the exam-taking skills for the grade of 5**

Many students are often misled that they can 'win' in the examination just counting on the 'exam skills' when they are sprinting in the final year of Secondary 6.  This is deceiving yourself and joking about your future for that:

(a) Secondary 6 students have to prepare for multiple subject examinations at the same time, and it is bearly possible to allocate too much time to English subject;

(b) When students are faced with a topic that is hard to understand, or their vocabulary level of the related topic is seriously insufficient, how can they rely on the so-called "exam skills" to pass the exam ?!  Unless you deem the examiner just a decoration.

👉 Recommendation: Students need to really improve their English proficiency while they still have time in Secondary 3, 4 and 5.

👉 Goal: To help students achieve the abilities and skills required for DSE 5** at an early stage.
