Length of course: 5 half-day sessions
Boards: Suitable for all boards

The course aims to provide a structured and systematic revision of the essential GCSE topic areas, vocabulary and grammar. The course is also appropriate for students following IGCSE specifications.  As some schools will have already completed the Writing and Speaking units prior to the Easter holidays, each course will be divided into two sessions. Students may book one or both sessions as appropriate:

Session 1, 1.5 hours:                Listening and Reading Comprehension

Session 2, 1.5 hours:                Writing and Speaking
