Judges' Comments : "Students generally showed a positive understanding of spoken grammar and register. We enjoyed listening to the students’ portrayal of the various characters in the story. Many students spoke with accurate pronunciation and appropriate intonation. We also loved the way facial expressions were employed to convey feelings as well as nuances of human and social interaction. Meaning was conveyed effectively through variations in pace, volume, tone and stress patterns. Finally, we were very impressed by how students handled the audio and visual resources of the Moo-O software."
- Mr Morgan Zhou

"Thank you very much for all your immense effort in the story narration! All the groups have demonstrated the values of unity and empathy to cooperate and learning from each another. Most of you are eloquent speakers and skilled communicators. Most importantly, it is the learning experience which is more valuable. Keep up the resilient learning spirit!"
- Mr Ng Wee Liam

"Many put in effort to express themselves in the various roles that they played. Commendable effort! Could see that students had fun in making the storytelling interesting and engaging for the audiences. I'm impressed by the quality of the productions."
- Mr Andrew Ng

"I was amazed at the level of dedication and talent these 9-year-olds have shown. Doing voice-over is never easy. Great job! Some things the children could improve is pronunciation and inflection. The meaning/understanding changes considerably. Students could also pay attention to facial expressions. When you give a character an "accent", need to carry it through and not let it affect pronunciation. Nevertheless, a wonderful presentation! Keep it up!"
- Ms Shalini Doshi
