  1. choo Said:

    hi, thank you for the information of the new literary texts for upper secondary. Do you have a list for the form 1 literary texts too?

  2. Marcus Fung Said:

    Is this for real? Tennyson’s poem is not an easy one… Quite tough.. Is it confirmed?

    • zahuren Said:

      Yup, it seems..

  3. Syed Amir Akasha Said:

    Teacher it’s really mind-wrecking to make the video at goanimate. Doesn’t it require some sort of paying before we can make the video??

    • zahuren Said:

      Akasha, go for the trial first…hehehe

  4. Yee Min Hong Said:

    Thanks for your info, come in time. Also would like to know where I can get info on the synopsis of each. Ms. Hong

  5. Yee Said:

  7. Kee Li Li Said:

    Dear Zahuren,
    Hi, do you also know about the poems and short story for Form 1 next year? If you have, can you share too? Thank you so much.

  8. Calvin Said:

    Hi this is Calvin. I realise that there are a total of 17 poems in this new literature book. Does it mean that they are all possible to be come out in the SPM 2016? Or just the four poems you mentioned above? (Which are Living Photograph, Charge of the Light Brigade, A Poison Tree and What Happened to Lulu)

  9. C. Mei Said:

    Do you have any news on the new literature texts for Form 1?


  10. Fatimah Said:

    Thanks for the info.
    I notice that there are 17 poems in the book. However, you have only selected 4. May i know why?

    • zahuren Said:

      Because at the moment I really do not have the time…plus this is for my teaching tool too..so I’m focussing on the ones that are compulsary to be taught to the students 🙂

  11. nobody Said:

    Is there any notes for those new literature text??

  12. mr.nobody Said:

    Please give any notes for the new literature..

  13. AinnurAlyaa Said:

    didn’t have synopsis about leaving no footprint. I really want it.

    • zahuren Said:

      On the way. Am very busy with tonnes of work 🙂

  14. Hong Yee Min Said:

    Hi, I am teaching form 4 English. This is my first year of teaching. I would like to know whether I should teach all the five short plays’ literary elements and all the short stories in Leaving No Footprint? Or I just need to select ‘The right thing to do’ in drama and ‘Tanjong Rhu’ in Leaving No footprint to teach? By the way, I am teaching in Tawau, Sabah. We only receive Leaving No Footprint stories collection but no ‘Changing their skies’ stories collection. Does it mean that Sabah high school just need to study Leaving No Footprint?

    • zahuren Said:

      Hello there,
      It is advisable to expose the students to the plays’ literary elements. But again, there are many constraints such as the varied proficiency of your students, time constrain and what not.For form 4, the poems that you need to teach are “The Living Photograph” and “The Charge of the Light Brigade”. Refer to http://engoasis.blogspot.com/2015/01/2015-literature-component.html for further information. Hope that answers your question. Happy teaching 🙂

  15. Mak Cik Said:

  16. Ms Sin Said:

    • zahuren Said:

      Hi there,
      We are not sure yet. But will update once we recieve any news.
