ESOL 21F - Full Year

ESL21F
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms C. McKinnon

This course is for students from non-English speaking backgrounds.  It provides support in all language strands – written, oral and visual. Students can achieve standards for NCEA in English and the new English Language (EL) standards. 

Please note: The total number of credits available for this course is 18. Students work at the level they are capable of. They therefore do one writing standard and one reading standard. 

Students who achieve the reading and writing standards at level 3 can use this evidence towards core generic Level 1 Literacy standards.

On a case by case basis, some students may be offered a further 5 credits. This would bring their total to 23 credits.

Future Possibilities
ESL 21F leads to ESL 31F, where IELTS, Level 2 NCEA and UE literacy is offered.
