Examples of related learning in the course


The student communicates effectively using a variety of means in a range of contexts in L1/ISL

In each strand, the student is asked to complete simple forms and follow verbal and/or nonverbal as well as written and/or pictorial instructions to carry out tasks. Items are identified and described, and gathered as evidence. Receiving information and summarising, as well as using deduction skills are important to strand 3. Throughout the course, communicating as a member of a group is encouraged.  In strand 4, there is an opportunity to present in a role-play situation such as a trial or a TV/radio news programme.
