Transitional English Junior

Prerequisite: placement test given either by the VSB or by the ESL Department at Point Grey indicating that the student’s ability is that of a student in the upper intermediate grades or successful completion of ESL. Students in this course are in Grades 8 or 9.

The goal of Transitional English Junior is to provide students with an opportunity to improve composition, reading, listening, and speaking skills. The course follows the curriculum of English 9 but differs in the time allotted to the study of curriculum materials and in its emphasis on the acquisition of vocabulary. The mark in this course determines the level of placement in regular English in the following year.
