Course description

GCSE English Language - PT Evening -GRENZE

Over the 30-week course you will develop your skills in reading, writing and speaking and listening. You will read a variety of texts and develop your analytical skills to explore why a writer has chosen certain words and phrases and the effect of these on the reader. You will learn to write more descriptively and creatively, whilst improving your vocabulary, spelling, punctuation and grammar. You will develop your ability to create a persuasive and compelling argument. Speaking and listening is also developed through class discussion and a speaking assessment of a short presentation. There are two final exam papers and your time will be split between the content of the exams. The first paper is fiction and the second paper is non-fiction.
