Think about this, what does this tells us?

Before this big recognition actually happens, I have already had students who practiced this topic in their school, so one thing that we can be sure and can foresee will be that, it will be a HOT topic for Oral exams, Compositions and Email writing.

To continue and go one step further, think about this, what are the questions that can be asked based on this topic?

There are many many questions that can be asked, but which are the most common ones?

Examples are:

1. Have you visited or eat at hawker Centre?

2. Do you prefer eating at restaurants or hawker centre?

3. Do you enjoy having your meals there? (In a open concept)

4. What are the challenges faced by hawkers?

5. What are the solutions to these challenges?

6. As a Singaporean, are you proud that our local Hawker’s culture is recognized and added to UNESCO? Why?


There are still many more questions that can be asked from this related Hawker topic!


Don’t forget that we are going to have a new POLY DIPLOMA.
