10 English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESA)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. Loh

Course Objectives:
To improve and support students’ English so they can:

  • understand and use English across the school curriculum
  • understand and use English in the community
  • develop confidence in using English.

Course Content:
This course offers three lessons per week and is designed to support students whose first language is not English. It is a cross curriculum programme and gives support and instruction in the four basic strands of language – reading, writing, listening and speaking. Students will increase their understanding of word meaning and usage; language needed in curriculum areas; and English grammar. The course also contributes towards preparing students for the Intermediate English language programme in Year 11.


Students can take this subject if English is not their first language and whose test results indicate their level of English acquisition is at intermediate level. Students should discuss with their ESOL teacher and English teacher whether they should take this subject.
