Lorna Whiston's Language Extension 5 programme is comprehensive, challenging and delivered through the vehicle of exciting themes designed to capture the students' interest and motivate them. The syllabus focuses on developing skills in the four main areas of language learning: speaking, listening, reading and writing. In addition, Language Extension 5 students receive guidance and instruction in the areas of vocabulary and grammar usage.
