This is an essential companion for students, teachers and examiners in relation to the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination. It covers five major areas: topics in functional writing with guidelines on how to write each one of them; how to prepare and answer cloze test questions – which many leaners deem difficult; listening and speaking skills; oral literature; and oral poetry.
The book utilizes examples from real-life situations that learners can relate to hence helping in the learning process.
Each of the areas covered in Paper 1 can be tricky when it comes to examination or testing. These aspects are covered within the individual topics and subtitled Tricky Aspects. This is intended to help learners understand distinguishing aspects that could jeopardize their full grasp of the concepts at hand.
This book has been written in line with the syllabus from the Kenya curriculum of Curriculum Development, KICD.
