Forum: Bookstores lack Foundation-level materials

As a private tutor, searching for student materials, including assessment books and practice papers, is part of my job.

However, a pupil's parent and I have noticed that there are insufficient materials for Foundation-level pupils at bookstores, especially Chinese books and papers. These pupils require practice to excel in their examinations, too.

At a bookstore, the pupil's parent managed to find the last book available for Foundation-level Chinese, with past-year papers from 2017 to last year. I could not find any Foundation-level Chinese books at a bookstore chain, besides the textbook and workbook used in schools.

Let us not neglect this group of pupils, and do our best to provide them with greater support and assistance.
