The book contains: A concise explanation of Paper 1 and informative notes on the use of language. A section on Comprehending that thoroughly prepares students for Questions A and B of Section 1 of the paper. A section on Composing which deals methodically with grammar, spelling and punctuation, and offers clear guidance on the main types of composition: articles, the personal essay, debate/speech and the short story. A theme-based section modelled on the Leaving Certificate examination format. Texts have been organised under twelve themes such as Sport, Prejudice and Bullying, Violence, Holidays and Pets. Many questions and composition exercises throughout the book that will serve as an ideal preparation for the examination. nn
