English (Home Language)

From superlative writing skills to dynamic presentation techniques and the development of a love for reading, we aim to provide valuable information and goal-oriented activities that encourage curiosity, stimulate critical thought, and challenge the way scholars think. Our manuals support the facilitation of an English programme designed to guide scholars, be relevant, relatable and engaging.

The Grade 8 English manual aims to introduce scholars with the necessary skills to communicate effectively in both written and spoken forms and consume the literary world around them in a dynamic and relatable manner.

The Grade 9 English manual builds on introductory concepts as previously learnt, and aims to establish a rapport with pertinent texts, while developing the skills to effectively communicate and write their opinions in a structured, dynamic manner.

The Grade 10 English manual continues to build on listening and communication skills, while delving deeper into concepts and written and visual skills centred around media literacy.

The Grade 11 English manual prepares scholars for their final year, by enhancing and building up their critical thinking skills through the application of communicative, visual and written skills and concepts learnt throughout their high schools year.
