Cambridge CAIE English Language IGCSE – Specification 0990

CAIE English Language (0990) is a favourite amongst home educators. Cambridge IGCSE First Language English is an internationally recognised qualification for learners whose first language is English.   In this course you will develop the ability to communicate clearly, accurately and effectively when both speaking and writing. You will acquire the skills necessary to use a wide range of vocabulary, and the correct grammar, spelling and punctuation to develop a personal style and an awareness of the audience being addressed.

The programme also promotes wider reading, both for your own enjoyment and to further your awareness of the ways in which English can be used. In addition to this, you will also develop more general analysis and communication skills such as inference and the ability to order facts and present opinions effectively.
