Experienced English Tutors in Randburg

As she paged through her Grade 8 setwork book, “Stronger than the Storm,” she realised that reading required deeper analysis. The stone that Thabang had lifted and tossed not only showed his outer strength but also depicted that they all carried their worries together. She would never have realised the symbolism of the stone had her tutor not pointed it out to her. Eventually, she was able to really read the text, she identified the similes on her own and could explain what the author meant when he compared Auntie Nomsa to a black snowman. 

Studying English literature or language undoubtedly provides you with the needed skills to succeed in most of the subjects that you will pursue at a university level. The reason why teachers introduce South African literature, international bestsellers and Shakespearean literature in the classroom is to help students learn to think more critically about all types of texts. Every story takes place within a particular time period and every aspect of the story will resonate with the time period wherein which the story occurred. Considering different perspectives of a particular story is a skill that students will gain from studying English literature and it is a skill that can be fostered after school as well. However, it is often a daunting task for a school going student to master the literary analysis skill on their own. This is why a tutor will step in and assist. If you are based in Randburg, do not despair help is on its way.

 

The English Evolution in School

English is a universal language and most of us are born speaking the language. Just switch on the television or radio, and you are bound to hear people conversing in English. While you start with utterances of the English language from the time you are an infant, your understanding of the language improves as the years go by. The use of formal English only starts to kick in when you attend school. The South African curriculum focuses on listening, speaking, reading, viewing, writing, and presenting. In the foundation phase, English speaking practice is the main focus. Teachers often prompt learners by asking them simple questions and oftentimes teachers will encourage questions from their learners just to get them to practise speaking the language. Debating, and comprehension skills are fostered and expanded on in the intermediate phase. As the learners progress through the grades, their vocabulary evolves too. The increased vocabulary and the understanding of the difference between the connotation of a word and its denotation is a skill that learners gain in high school. Answering questions as to why the writer wrote a particular text and how the diction used by the writer relates to the message of the text is to be expected in the higher grades. Aside from showcasing their impeccable comprehension abilities, learners will also need to show that they are able to grasp poetry and literary works of fiction. By becoming absorbed into a good novel, students are educated about diverse societies, eras, and situations. Learners will also need to articulate their opinions on literary works that have been read.  The study of English requires devotion, passion, enthusiasm from the learners.

 

Why Study English?

Whether you would like to express things from a religious perspective as can be interpreted from, “Life of Pi”, discuss controversial issues like in Wilde’s, “The Picture of Dorian Gray,” or speak about tragic romance from, “Rome & Juliet, “you need to be able to write in English. The study of English can help you beyond the four walls of the English classroom, as you could become an author, journalist, or an English online tutor for students from abroad. If you choose to become a linguist, the decision will come from your love of studying English and other languages at school.
