My Old Chinese Composition Exercise Book

This is my old Chinese Composition exercise book, 31 years ago when I was in Sec.3 (1977);

Note that this old Chinese Composition exercise book was turned from left to right as it was binded on the right side instead of on the left side.

Take a look at the inside;

The unique part is the pages are joined in this manner;

Nowadays I don’t think the school is still using such Chinese Composition exercise book. My Sec.2 son’s Chinese Composition paper is in the form of foolscap paper type;

Of course I prefer the new type which is more convenient!

    Thanks for dropping by Rambutan. Glad to have another fellow Victorian here. Yes, I do remember Mr.Menon. Also not forgetting Mr.Alan – the one who likes to send his students First Day Cover.

    I don’t recall our Chinese compo books were like that.

    Anyway, you are great man! Even composition book can keep for 31 years. But I still have my primary 1 report card! That’s from 1959. May next year, when it reacher half-century. Some of my old stuff, better keep for my grandchildren.

    Funny leh, shouldn’t the characters be written parallel to the paper fold? Even the printed words follow this orientation.

    Hi Chun See,
    I think you mean your Primary Sch report card right? Not just your Pri.1 one.

    Hi Icemoon,
    Yes, for normal Chinese Compo it was written in the manner you mention. But for the “Yin Yong Wen”, it was written in the manner as shown above. “Yin Yong Wen” refer to letter writing, notice, etc…

    Hmm, I can’t see the chinese characters clearly, but I think your piece wasn’t 应用文 but some kind of narrative. I see a lot of Ali, Ali.
