Level Two A represents the first step towards complete consolidation of all primary-level skills, for students who have reached standard fluency and competence in reading, writing and speaking. Higher-order skills and meta-awareness are prioritised, building on a strong language framework typically achieved in Level One. Literary writing techniques create culturally apt effects that delight readers. Students learn to read inferentially and analyse basic language and textual effects. Grammar and vocabulary is specifically deployed to create precise and intentional meaning.
