Within the Second English course, critical textual analysis guides the study from the reading process, comprehension and interpretation, writing processes and applications, and writing components in order to communicate various original insights on world themes and the common human experience among all cultures. Narratives, short stories, prose, poetry, persuasions, and even letters of complaint and applications will ready the learner for articulate, expressive clarity within communication.

English 2 will give the students a unique understanding and appreciation of humans' struggle with Nature, varying cultural perspectives, effective leadership qualities, and a creative eye for imaginative writings.
