Comprehensive student-friendly resources designed for teaching Cambridge International AS and A Level English Language (syllabus 9093 for first examination in 2015). The core aim of this Coursebook is to help students to develop and apply the key skills they need to achieve in AS and A Level English Language. They will build the skills needed for assessment through frequent activities. Divided into two distinct parts for AS and A Level studies, the book covers a wide range of reading skills, such as understanding aspects of style, voice and tone. It also addresses the conventions of key kinds of writing and spoken language, from scripted speeches to travel articles, and looks at how they can capture these conventions in their own work.

Covering all areas of linguistic investigation across the different exam board specifications, this accessible text rooted in theoretical perspectives is underpinned by years of teaching experience and is rich with practical classroom activities. Each of the sections included in this book is either an examined area of study from the AS and A2 specifications or deals with the supporting frameworks of linguistic analysis, and is helpfully split into two parts: An overview of how to teach that area of study, and a discussion of the appropriate level of knowledge that students will require; Individual lesson ideas and plans, with resources provided throughout. Teaching English Language 16 – 19 opens with a brief introductory section that outlines the reasoning behind taking an investigative approach to the study of language. A sequence of suggested lesson ideas for the opening lessons of a typical course, amounting to some eight lessons with homework research and discussion preparation tasks, is also included. Students on initial teacher education courses, as well as practising teachers undertaking the teaching of language for the first time, will welcome this highly practical resource.
