13 English as a Second Language

This course covers NCEA reading and writing for Level 2 Literacy. It is expected that students will have Level 1 Literacy and have built a sound foundation in terms of writing and reading skills in earlier years, especially in 12ESL. Students will need to ensure they supplement classwork with significant grammar revision and vocabulary extension activities to cope with the high standard of academic writing required. All the Standards are internally assessed.


Recommended Prior Learning

Level 1 Literacy or with approval of HOD ESOL. The course is specifically designed for ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) students.
