By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Use the correct word order for a range of phrasal verbs, with 1 or 2 particles, and with/out objects.
2. Use knowledge of prefixes and suffixes to make appropriate word choices (of verbs, adverbs, nouns and adjectives).

4. Review a piece of text, making any necessary changes or corrections to errors of spelling, grammar or punctuation.
5. Use strategies and prior knowledge to spell the majority of common and unfamiliar words accurately.
