Subtitle: The Practical Approach to Leaving Certificate English Paper 1

How to tackle successfully Paper 1, which carries 50% of the total marks in the exam.

Features:

  • Comprises five theme-based units, each of which may be used as a complete sample paper.
  • A jargon-free approach, with comprehensive notes, clear guidelines, and a variety of modern texts.
  • Suitably challenging for Higher Level students, but each unit also contains texts that Ordinary Level candidates may work on with confidence.
  • Each Unit contains :
    • Section A: Comprehending - Four stimulating texts, including photograph, with pre-reading exercises and reading questions, modelled precisely on the revised Leaving Certificate paper.
    • Section B: Focus on ... - Concentrates on a specific genre in each unit. Clear definitions and short text examples of each one, with commentary on its individual features.
    • Section C: Composing - Practical advice and notes on all stages of the composition process. Essay titles are specifically linked to the Comprehending texts from Section A, and to the overall theme of the unit, as in the exam format.
    • Section D: Language Skills - Exercises to heighten awareness of how language is used to convey meaning. Practice in the mechanics of language, i.e. punctuation and spelling, and efficiency of language use, i.e. syntax, use of lively, interesting phrasing.
  • Sample Answer to Comprehending exercises in Units 2-5.
