The English curriculum is organised by language modes and strands.
Language Modes: Reading and Viewing, Writing and Speaking and Listening The language modes are interrelated and the learning in one often supports and extends learning of the others. Each content description has been placed in the mode which is the major focus of its learning. Classroom contexts that address particular content descriptions will necessarily draw on more than one of these modes in order to support students’ effective learning. For example, students will learn new vocabulary through listening and reading and apply their knowledge and understanding in their speaking and writing as well as in their comprehension of both spoken and written texts.
Strands and Sub - strands Within each language mode, the content descriptions are grouped into strands and sub - strands.
