12ESO

Year 12 Additional English as a Second Language

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Harrison

This course covers the study and use of written language, the development and command of written language, and an understanding and critical awareness of a range of texts and genres. Its particular focus is to strengthenEnglish language skills. While successful completion of the course will gain 20 NCEA credits, they do not specifically contribute to Level 2 Literacy. Students who study 12ESO can do so in conjunction with 12ESL, where they can acquire University Entrance literacy credits. Extensive supplementary work is expected beyond the classroom in revising grammar and extending vocabulary.
