Past Exams and Assessment Reports
English Foundations Level 2 is nationally comparable with all Australian jurisdictions where senior secondary Australian Curriculum: English has been implemented. All elements of Australian Curriculum: English Units 1 and 2 are contained in this course.

English Foundations Level 2 focuses on developing learners' analytical, creative and critical thinking and communication skills in all language modes. It encourages learners to engage with texts from their contemporary world and with texts from Australian and other cultures. Such engagement helps learners develop a sense of themselves, their world and their place in it.

Through close study and wide reading, viewing and listening, learners develop the ability to appreciate and evaluate the purpose, stylistic qualities and conventions of literary and non-literary texts and enjoy creating their own imaginative, interpretive and analytical responses. English Foundations Level 2 is designed to develop learners' facility with all types of texts and language modes and to foster an appreciation of the value of English for lifelong learning.

Learners refine their skills across all language modes by engaging critically and imaginatively with texts, including literary and media texts. They learn to speak and write fluently in a range of contexts and to create mono and multimodal texts. They hone their oral communication skills through discussion, debate and argument, in a range of formal and informal situations.
