Engels Eerste Taal

The English Department at Diamantveld believes that each pupil should be taught to use language as a means to communicate ideas and thoughts coherently and effectively.

This can be done as a Home Language or as a First Additional Language. Our aim is to provide pupils with the tools to:

  • Think creatively.
  • Express themselves articulately.
  • Read intelligently with insight and understanding.
  • Be aware of how the English language can assist in the making of a well-balanced, informed and perceptive individual.
  • Realise that language and literature mirror and explore human experience.
  • Know that English is the platform that will form the basis for continued learning of a superior standard.

"Language tethers us to the world; without it we spin like atoms" - Penelope Lively
