Book Description

Written by a team of experienced examiners and teachers, and matched to the requirements of the latest CSEC syllabus, English A for CSEC adopts a skills-based approach and engages students with a variety of carefully structured activities to maintain interest. CSEC examination-type questions throughout develop skills and provide valuable practice alongside interesting, audience-appropriate, extracts that meet the outcomes of the syllabus and the requirements of the
examination. A newly added SBA section focuses on core skills required for this aspect of the assessment.
