English – standard

The English Stage 6 Syllabus outlines the purpose of the Preliminary and HSC English – standard courses.

The Preliminary and HSC English (Standard) courses are designed for students to become proficient in English to enhance their personal, social and vocational lives. These courses provide students with the opportunity to become confident and effective communicators and to enjoy the breadth and variety of English texts. They offer a rich language experience that is reflected in the modes of reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing and representing.
