How to improve Chinese Classical Text Comprehension for SPM students

My son is taking SPM Chinese and there is an section in the paper on Classical Text Comprehension. We are a non-Chinese speaking family so it is rather hard for him since he is not taking any tuition and we have difficulty helping him. I turned to the Malaysia Primary and Secondary school parents FB groups for help and recommended tips. Here is are some tips given by the parents who have sat for the paper themselves.

Understand the content. 

Firstly, you have to understand the context and background first including the motif of the speaker. To get a better understanding of the context, the story and the history, it is suggested to

1. Watch Chinese historical dramas set in ancient China to improve understanding on Chinese history and spark interest. You can even watch them in Cantonese and read the subtitles if Mandarin is too difficult for you. Even the Mandarin ones will not fully use Classical text speech, the idea is to understand the story and history.

2. Read the stories behind the ancient text to understand the context. You can read the story books, comics or even read them in English depending on your level of understanding. The idea is to understand the context and the stories. Below are some examples.

(i) Comics - Chinese Classical Comics for example 蔡志忠 Tsai Chih Chung comics. His comic strips are mostly written in classical Chinese, about Chinese tradition, cultures and idioms.. etc. The comics come with present day Chinese explanations.

(ii) Storybooks - If you are able to read the whole set of Chinese classical stories, you will be better able to understand the questions. You can also read Jin Yong novels.

(iii) English/Bilingual - If your Chinese is not that good, you can read the stories in English. For example you can read the comics from Asiapac on 3 Kingdoms, Madam White Snake etc in English to get a better understanding of the subject. 




Know the text

文言文is a bit tricky as one word will have many meanings.

1. Get a dictionary to translate ancient text to modern text or use Baidu to search.

2. Know and memorize the commonly used classical text phrases and keywords. If you have friends in the same level in CIS, try asking for their notes. The teachers of most CIS do wonderful work of listing the common words. 

3. Make use of apps to find dictionaries and other references.


4. Practice- Classical Chinese have similar keywords which appear often in the exam questions. Try to do as many past year questions as possible so you can see the pattern and know which keywords are a must know. Then just try to connect the dots in between those key words

The following blog post has useful tips on how to answer the SPM Chinese paper including Classical Text Comprehension (文言文理解) section. Check it out.

Myopia in Children

Does Your Child Suffer From Myopia? 


Does your child always squint or rub his/her eyes when trying to look at far away objects? Or does your child always read his/her book at a very close distance?

Your child could be suffering from myopia. 



What is Myopia?

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a very common eye health issue, especially among children. Myopia normally develops during childhood. It is a condition where one can see near objects well, but have trouble seeing objects at a distance clearly.

Those with myopia usually have longer eyeball length compared to normal healthy eyes, where the light rays is unable to focus on the retina but focus in front of the retina. Aside from that, if the cornea (outer layer of eye) is too curved, the light that enters the eyes won’t be able to focus correctly on the retina. All of these will lead to blur vision at a distance. 


Image credit: https://humanbodyanddiseases.weebly.com/myopia.html 



According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, there’s evidence that myopia prevalence keep increasing globally and recent study shows that an estimate of about 50% of the population worldwide (about 5 billion people) will have myopia by 2050. 


Genetic and environmental factors are both the reasons contributing to myopia development. Some eye experts believe that children who spend more time using their eyes on “close-up” activities, such as usage of smartphones, tablets or computers, are at higher risk of developing myopia.


What are the symptoms of myopia?


· Blur vision on distance objects

· Eye strain / fatigue

· Headache

· Squinting


Generally young children will not complain about their vision during the initial stage. However, parents or even teachers will be able to notice the child’s condition easily and take further actions to control it at an early stage.

Here are some of the conditions or signs which a child will show if they are experiencing myopia:

· Squinting constantly when see things afar

· Tilting head or closing one eye to read

· Holding books, smartphones or doing homework at a close range

· Often rubbing their eyes

· Frequent headaches

· Tearing

Although myopia (nearsightedness) can be easily corrected using eye glasses, contact lens or refractive surgery, children with high myopes are at greater risk for certain eye diseases such as retinal detachment, macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts as they grow older into their adulthood.

Thus, in order to prevent nearsightedness to progress too fast or further worsen, there are ways to slow down progression of myopia in children:

1. Low dose atropine eye drops

2. Specially designed eye glasses

3. Soft peripheral defocus contact lenses

4. Orthokeratology contact lenses 


One of the most effective ways would be the fitting of Orthokeratology contact lenses. Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K contact lens is a non-surgical procedure of reshaping the cornea gently when you sleep. This type of contact lens helps to control or correct one’s myopia (nearsighted), providing freedom in vision and the convenience of going glasses free during the day. 

Click on the banner below to redeem E-Voucher consist of eye screening and Boston Solution lens care set (total worth RM220).

Scan QR code to find the outlets near you where you can redeem the voucher below.
  




Though there are corrective measures for myopia (nearsightedness), but prevention is always better than cure. We should encourage our children to spend more time outdoors and reduce their time spent on computers or other digital devices. 

Last but not least, schedule an eye examination with eye care professionals annually to monitor your child’s vision throughout the years, so that any eye health problems can be attended to at an early stage.
