Year 9 ESOL focuses on the development of the four core language skills: Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. These courses provide students with opportunities to learn English through the lens of traditional text types studied in English Literature, ranging from novels, short stories, non-fiction and news, to film, radio, oratory and advertising. Students study thematic units each term which incorporate an emphasis on different grammar and English skills into their exploration of a topic. Assessments range from basic comprehension to application of specific skills through production.
