The course provides a structured and systematic revision of the essential IGCSE topic areas, vocabulary and grammar. Students are given plenty of opportunities to practise all linguistic skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking) by completing past papers.
Each day focuses on one topic area and its sub-topics. Vocabulary is revised and grammar rules are explained and put into practice, in the context of the topic under consideration. Students are set listening, reading, writing and speaking tasks which are taken from past papers and also relate to the topic of the day. Advice is given on exam requirements and techniques. Translation practice is also given special attention in the revision sessions.
Aspects of grammar covered:
- Adjectives (gender and number agreement, position, comparisons)
- Verbs (present tense, perfect tense, imperfect tense, future)
