English

This English course is based on the National Curriculum for the 11 Plus Examination. This 50 week video lecture course covers a full academic year and will help you get on your way to 11 Plus success. The main topics covered include grammar, spelling, vocabulary, punctuation, creative writing and essay writing tips. Each week consists of 2 video lectures (each approximately 4-6 minutes long) with real teachers followed by 60 questions. Over the course of the year, you will have access to 100 video lectures and 3000 questions with explanations. Our syllabus has been carefully structured to maximise learning and information retention. Follow us for 11 plus success!

Recommended pace

 There are 2 videos and 6 quizzes added every week.

 We recommend that the pupil:

  • watches the video first before attempting the quizzes.
  • sets aside approximately 30-45 minutes each week to watch and take both video lectures and quizzes. More time may be needed for more difficult topics, to account for time to take notes and rewind sections when necessary.
  • keeps retaking the vocabulary tests and writing down all unfamiliar words, until every word is understood and remembered clearly.
