About this Unit
The English Language is always used in context. The contexts in which we use English require us to use the language in specific ways. This unit introduces students to the analysis of English texts in context. Students will learn how to analyse text structure and purpose, and they will learn how to analyse the systems of the English language as they are used to facilitate context specific and context appropriate communication. Working between models of social contexts and the language level systems of English, students will develop a greater level of skill in using English for exposition, explanation, reporting, recounting and narrating.
