What skills or experience do I need to join this course?
What else do I need to know? Is there anything I need to provide?
- What you need: You will need an internet connection, speakers, a microphone and a webcam so that you can use our video learning platform, Zoom. If you’d like to understand more Zoom please visit: http://bit.ly/ZoomSpec - You will also need access to the internet outside of your sessions. You could do this using a smart phone, tablet, laptop or a desktop computer (at home or through a library etc.). - You will need a personal email address to join the WEA’s digital learning platform, Canvas so that you can receive resources, record your progress and achievement and to work with others and share ideas. If you want to understand more about our digital learning platform please visit: http://bit.ly/WEAonline - The tutor will give you work for most lessons and can tell you about other books or websites that will help if you want to study more at home.
Course aim:
This course will help you to practise your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in English. This course leads to the Functional Skills English assessment at Entry 3.
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. You will use real life examples to practise different reading techniques, including descriptions, instructions, explanations and stories. You 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. You will look at extending sentences, paying particular attention to the grammatical accuracy, to write about events and actions in the past, present and future. Using everyday situations, you will practise giving short explanations and descriptions. You will look at when and where formal language is needed in some common situations (e.g. work, education).
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Plan, draft and proofread short texts using compound sentences and paragraphs as appropriate
2. Identify and use features of different types of texts to help find information, e.g. using headings and sub headings
3. Take part in a discussion, giving my opinion clearly, allowing others to join in fairly, and making relevant responses to others’ contributions
4. Listen to a short presentation and make notes about the key information
5. Read and spell 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.
