Intermediate 2 English provides a full colour and comprehensive resource for the syllabus offered by the Scottish Qualifications Authority. A course overview is provided so that students appreciate what commitment will be involved in undertaking the course and sitting the examination. The book also provides teaching materials and exercises for all four of the internally assessed units and both papers of the externally marked exam.

As well as the materials on the skills involved in Close Reading, Textual Analysis and Essay Writing, the Literature Study section offers three short stories and three poems with classroom resources. These give a thorough grounding for the literature essay in the exam. In all sections, the necessary skills or areas of knowledge are introduced gradually, tested with brief activities, demonstrated again, and then reinforced and tested in larger end-of-chapter summaries and assessment activities. Attractively illustrated, and written in a style that is accessible and motivating throughout, Intermediate 2 English is the complete course resource for the widest range of Intermediate 2 students.
