Higher English

English is the study of verbal and written communication in Scotland's main language. It teaches learners how to get the most out of reading, writing, listening and talking. Through their studies they will become familiar with the richness of literature as well as gaining vital skills.

The Understanding Standards website cover the subject at four levels - Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2, Higher and Advanced Higher.
