The S1 and S2 Homework Booklets are full of all those rules of grammar that you probably once knew but may well have forgotten about. In the Save and Send section you can find out how to go about e-mailing your favourite pieces of work to K.A. Publisher or getting that last-minute homework exercise to your English teacher. Remember also to check the Notice Board for English News, assessment dates and homework deadlines.

K.A. Publisher

In this section you can put your work on display and get the chance to receive some recognition and feedback from a world-wide audience as well as your friends and relatives. You will also get some fresh ideas for your own Writing from reading other people's work.

This section will help you to develop your English to the extent that you get real enjoyment from it, both now and in later life . Remember that if you want to do well in anything, you really have to do more than the bare minimum. The links below provide you with some useful and interesting suggestions.
