ENGLISH AS AN ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE/DIALECT (EAL/D)

Both Semesters

Whilst running parallel to mainstream English, English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D) encompasses differential teaching which focuses on the improvement and extension of comprehension skills, pronunciation, vocabulary extension, oral and written communication.
Students at this level read and view increasingly complex texts (print and non-print) emanating from topic areas; explore issues and texts that develop their comprehension and understanding of issues; write for a range of purposes and audiences; experiment with different modes of writing; are taught the basic strategies of argument; develop language and structure through the drafting process; speak and listen in a range of situations both formal and informal; demonstrate increasing competence in the uses of the English language and continue to develop pronunciation skills.
