Stage 1 | Subject outline | Content


Stage 1 Essential English is a 10-credit or a 20-credit subject.

The content includes:

  • responding to texts
  • creating texts.

Decisions about the content of the teaching and learning program should centre on ways in which students use language to establish and maintain connections with people in different contexts. The program may focus on a single context or a range of contexts for different parts of the program.

The specific contexts chosen for study may be social, cultural, community, workplace, and/or imagined. In planning a teaching and learning program, teachers work with students to support the achievement of their goals.

A suggested text list is available on the subject minisite.
