ESOL Ww/E1.2a

Form the letters of the alphabet using upper and lower case
(i) Understand when lower and upper case are generally used, e.g. lower case is used for general text, but upper case is used for the first letter of names, places and dates, and may also be used for emphasis or effect, as in an advert.
(ii) Space letters and words appropriately and proportion letters in relation to the line.

An introduction lesson for ESOL/Pre Entry to help build learner confidence and introduce them to college rules/expectations.

Editor's note

Two complete and very welcoming lessons. Also covers asking and responding to questions about personal information, recognising letters of the alphabet, and classroom equipment.  Lovely :)
