Warm grettings

Welcome to Learn English Easily,my new blog where I share my passion and patience as an educator, writer and motivator. The main reasons that prompted me to create this blog are to share and guide, to shed the light and shower the love on our journey of life under the shed of positive mindset. Learning English might be stressful and cause our anxiety level to increase. It all depends on how we accept the subject. If we try to open our hearts, minds and souls with FAITH for the sake of our love to God, He will grant us the ability to be strong and to move on for our own self development and for our professional development, and He will grant us the ability to share our knowledge, skills and talents as a service to others willingly....eventually, we can feel the passion and patience flowing gracefully by God’s will…making our learning process stress free, lowering our anxiety level and enabling us to achieve higher performance and greater achievements. Thank you God for Your Endless Blessings.. With love and light,

Writing dramatic narration for SPM English Paper 1, section B:

When we plan to write a narrative essay for SPM English Paper 1, section B: Continuous Writing, we have to bear in mind of making our essay exciting and impressive. The first thing  to do is study the question carefully, understand the scope of the question, then draw a rough plot from the beginning , rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. 

Then we should decide the theme, moral values, characters and scenes of events. The theme of the story is the central message and the moral values are the lessons that we have learned from the story. In order to make our story alive, name the settings/places of our story, then describe the scenes of the places. 

A part from that, name the characters and reveal their characteristics by writing about their actions, reactions, thoughts, speeches and what other characters say about them. We also have to elaborate the sequence of events and incidents, what happen, how did it happen, why did it happen, who was involved and when did it happen? 

Please don’t forget to describe the scenes, characters, events and incidents using our 5 senses, what we see, hear, touch, smell and taste and add appropriate adjectives and adverbs. We can also use phrases, idioms, sayings or expressions to make our narration lively and impressive too. 

The marking scheme for continuous writing will be based on impression, as its holistic marking, where scoring involves the assigning of a single score to a piece of writing based on a “whole” reading of the essay.  The examiner will fit the candidate’s response to the most appropriate band, by referring to upper and lower bands and the marks depend on the number of criteria that are found in the script that matches the band. 

Please make sure the language used is accurate, use  varied sentence structures (simple, compound, complex, compound/complex sentences), and the use of vocabulary is correct, precise and wide. Write well-planned  paragraphs, unified and appropriately linked, and make sure the tone and mood suites the story creating interest,arousing mood and sustaining creativeness  throughout the story.
Write from your heart, so that you can feel being the characters as by doing so you will be more expressive in your narrative writing...
