Course description:
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. For more information and to book an appointment please call 0300 303 3464. This course is for students who have already passed the Functional English Entry 2 exam. You will give opinions about everydayl issues. You will look at different features of longer texts and how these can help us to understand the purpose of the text and find information in it. You will improve your spelling of words by using strategies you have learned before. You will work on extending sentences, in a range of tenses, to write about events and actions in the past, present and future.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Take part in a discussion: give my opinions clearly and listen and respond appropriately to others’ contributions
2. Use effective strategies to find the meaning of unknown words
3. Identify the main purpose and ideas in a longer piece of writing
4. Plan and draft a short piece of writing using longer sentences, paragraphs, correct grammar and punctuation
5. Spell common and regular words correctly
How will I learn?

We expect you to attend your classroom sessions and make time to do any required learning activities on your own.

The WEA tutor will use a range of teaching and learning activities and encourage you and the group to be actively involved in your learning. Your tutor will use tasks to see how you are learning, which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects, discussion, written or practical work. Your tutor will give you feedback on your learning and progress.
