OverviewEssential English is a personal assistant. It lists in an easy-to-use A'Z format the terminology used in the senior English classroom. It is an invaluable personal resource and a ready reference designed to help your students' memory when texts are being read, analysed, critiqued; when essays and extended answers are being considered, prepared and written. This is not a teaching textbook, but a reference book; use it in the way that suits your classroom best. There are empty spaces for your students to add any notes or additional terms you would like them to have. Use Essential English to make your students' work more precise, detailed and perceptive.
