Level 2 English as a Second Language
This course improves your English language skills, so it will help you in your other subjects at school, at work, and in your family and community. You can earn EL (English Language) credits at NCEA Level 2. Some students may do assessments at Level 1 or 3.
This course will develop your English reading, writing and speaking skills. We will help you to become bilingual (or multilingual). This means you will be able to use two (or more) languages for speaking, reading and writing.
