This is an online series of classes for primary school students to prepare for their PSLE by eduKate SG. It is a set of checklists of English knowledge that students should know and use during the PSLE Examinations. Kindly find out the meanings to the following:


In a composition, it is necessary to give details for characters to take on a personality and describing occupations will be a good starting point to paint the nature of a person.

For example, “Jane takes care of animals and works in an animal clinic.” can be changed to,” Jane is a veterinarian who is kind and benevolent to animals.”

Notice that the first sentence has 11 words, but the second has 12 words but is more efficient in the delivery of multiple concepts of who Jane is? This allows students to synthesise their sentence structure and add on other information to increase their content. It makes the sentence fuller and richer in detail without being too draggy.
