Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Cox

This is a multi-level class for students from Year 9 to Year 13 who are using English as a second language at a basic/elementary level (CEFR A1, A2). It is 4 hours a week.

Students will focus on developing both their reading and writing skills. They will gain an understanding of the structure of different written genres and improve their comprehension skills. Vocabulary and grammar skills are assessed regularly.  Students will be encouraged to work collaboratively for some tasks.

Students can gain up to 20 internally assessed unit standard credits for L1 English Language (EL). Other assessments include regular vocabulary tests, mid-year and end of year exams. Students will have access to digital devices and digital tools such as Education Perfect and Read Theory, to improve their grammar, literacy skills and digital literacy.



Required Prior Learning


If testing and interviews show that students are at a basic/elementary level of English and they need to improve their reading and writing skills in English to be able to achieve at college, students will be placed in this class.
