Charles Dickens once said, “There are books of which the backs and the covers are by far the best parts.” Many students feel this way too and can stare at a literature set workbook for hours on end without being able to read anything beyond the blurb. Reading sometimes seems overwhelming to the “Netflix generation’’ who do not yet have the experience to appreciate literary fiction, nor have they developed a deeper love for the written text despite it being critically discussed in the classroom. However, if reading a novel seems too tedious, remember English is much more than just literature. When we talk about studying English at a high school level, we could be talking about finding the metaphor in the poem, “Garden of Love”, or acting out the roles of Desdemona and Othello, or simply discussing the gothic romance within, The Picture of Dorian Gray. English is an all-encompassing subject that expects much from the students who engage in the study of the language. Benoni is one specific city that has been keeping up with the times since 2016 and in turn encouraging the culture of reading especially among the youth who are technologically inclined. The city allows library members to download e-books for free via the Ekurhuleni public library website. Hence Benoni is one city that is best for furthering your understanding of the English language, grammar, and even literature.
“To be, or not to be, that is the question.” Using Hamlet’s famous dialogue as inspiration the real question is whether to study English or not to study English further. Of course, there is not much of a choice as English is the Home language or first additional language offered at most schools. But the real reason for studying the language is to improve speaking, reading, and writing skills. If you think about it attempting an English comprehension will allow you to develop the critical thinking skills that will aid you in exploring and understanding all texts that you will encounter in any subject discipline. Think about it for a moment, English makes you a reader but it also makes you a writer. English gives you the outlet to put your thoughts forward in the form of a brainstorm. Writing essays during school will aid in helping you write dissertations and thesis when you reach university. If you feel that pursuing English at University is the best option for you, then perhaps getting a tutor to support you during your schooling years is an excellent option. You can further your studies by doing a course in creative writing, journalism, or even linguistics.
The grade 8 set workbook, “Stronger than the Storm,” proves that even as time evolves, certain things remain the same. Developments in technology have certainly reinvented the way in which we interact with language and literature. IPads and Kindle can sometimes read books to you. Then again before you start to think that technology is all bad, remember that technology has improved many things. Certain popular blogs allow students to write and publish their work. Research is readily available at learners’ fingertips. During the Coronavirus pandemic, Superprof has made sure that you can stay connected to tutors of your choice using your phone and laptop. If technology is something that you are personally passionate about, opt for an online tutor for an English course. Technology need not hinder your ability to grasp the English language but can stimulate you to find newer ways of learning. Reading the news via an online newspaper site is considered as beneficial as reading the news in the newspaper.
Your Grade 12 reader, “Life of Pi,” may not seem as easy as pie but having an English tutor will benefit you in the long run by getting you to grasp the story of Pi. Most universities at some time or the other require students to write essays on why they should be selected for a certain course of study or being accepted in an honours program. This means that you will be ready to tackle your admission essay if you sought essay-writing help during your school years. You might be considering attending The University of Johannesburg or Witwatersrand University, where you may want to pursue a degree in Journalism, Sociology, or Linguistics. All these degrees require a solid understanding of the English language. Most universities offer discounted fee rates for students who obtain an “A’’ symbol in their Grade 12 year. Perhaps bettering your mark from 70% to 80% is your reason for seeking additional support in English. Take a leap of faith. If Richard Parker (the tiger) didn’t eat Pi because of Pi’s inner faith than surely seeking additional help will be worth the faith that you have in it.
Maybe you feel that you need to improve your grades in English to better your chances of getting into a course of your choice at university. You may also have a keen interest in developing your understanding of an English aspect such as creative writing just because it is something you love to do. Irrespective of your reasoning you can get involved in tickling your English bone. Doing research on your chosen set workbook may help. If you research Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth, you will learn that it was seen as a cursed play as the storyline tempered with the unnatural order of things. You will be astonished at how many things you will find about a book, poem, or language concept if you do some research on it. Joining a monthly subscription service like, “The Book Case,’’ which delivers fictional books and bookish treats to your door every month is also excellent to encourage you to read and take a keen interest in reading. Joining a book club on Facebook or Instagram is also a good way to develop your critical thinking skills when it comes to literature. Online group members provide feedback on books that they have read and they critic books as well. This will assist you when it comes to writing literary essays. However, these options are merely hobbies to foster your love for English and reading but will not necessarily get you the ‘’A’’ symbol you crave. To date one of the most effective and efficient ways to better your English mark is to work alongside a private tutor. Private tuition allows you to designate the pace and the number of lessons that you will have monthly. Your tutor will be able to determine where your strengths lie and areas within the subject where you could use some improvement. This means that tuition could cater to better your essay-writing skills, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, or interpretation skills.
