This Level Two IGCSE English language assumes a good command of both spoken and written English. The course will expect you to read and analyse a range of texts from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Therefore this course is not always suitable for those whose English is not their first language. If you’re unsure, get in touch and we can offer you some guidance.
