ENGLISH FOUNDATION COURSE

As a creative representation of life as experience, literature leads students to deepen their understanding of the many dimensions of human thought and experience. All students should be able to process literary, informational, persuasive, and graphic texts that will form the base of their writing ability.

Effective comprehension strategies include predicting, visualizing, questioning, drawing inferences, identifying main ideas and summarising. A good reader will be able to further analyse, synthesize, make connections, evaluate and use a host of critical and creative thinking skills to achieve a deeper level of understanding the material read.

Similarly, writing is a complex process that involves organizing thoughts, remembering important information, solving problems, reflecting on a range of perspectives, and communicating effectively for specific purposes and to specific audiences through appropriate use of language and style.

True North tutors tailor strategies to suit the learning needs of the students in the classroom and the nature of the material used for reading or writing.
