Oral Language

In English, students study, use, and enjoy language and literature communicated orally, visually, or in writing.


  • Students need to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable them to be competent and confident speakers and listeners.

Learning Goals

Through our teaching and learning programmes, our students should:

  • Understand and use links between reading, writing, oral and visual language.
  • Listen and respond to others and to texts appropriately in one to one situations, small groups and larger audiences
  • Speak clearly and with confidence using appropriate vocabulary and verbal and non verbal features in one to one situations, small groups and to larger audiences
