The English as an Additional Language or Dialect ATAR course provides opportunities for students to engage reflectively and critically with a broad range of spoken, written and multimodal texts, including literary and non-literary texts, for example, academic, every day and workplace texts. Students learn to create, individually and collaboratively, increasingly complex texts for different purposes and audiences in different forms, modes and media.

Unit 1 to Unit 4 develop students’ academic English skills in order to prepare them for tertiary study (SCSA, 2019).
