This is an English language course that will very much appeal to many home-educators being almost wholly concerned with the use of language.
There are no 'set books' and no literary criticism elements. The aim is 'to enable students to communicate, understand and respond accurately, appropriately and effectively; to encourage students to appreciate a variety of language;
to promote students' personal development and understanding of themselves and to complement other areas of their study by developing skills of analysis, drawing inferences etc.'
A worthwhile course to provide a basic qualification required by many employers and institutions of further education. Study guide - approximately 100-150 hrs assuming average starting skills.
The course has 12 assignments. Examination by two papers either at Core or Extended level.
