Before you can join this course, you will need to talk to a member of staff and do an initial assessment to make sure the course is right for you.

We will use a wide range of real life examples to practise different reading techniques, including descriptions, instructions, explanations and stories. This will help you to improve your dictionary skills and broaden your vocabulary. We will look at the layout and different features of longer texts, and how these can help us to understand the purpose of the text and find information in it
