Students' Comments on English

  • Learning English at Collingwood College is so inspiring. There are so many intriguing lessons to learn about in Year 7, such as creative writing, and reading books.

  • The teachers are really supportive and always give good, honest feedback.

  • English allows you to think more creatively and also develops your inference skills when analysing different texts.

  • Making inferences and predictions in English makes me feel like a detective!

  • English is my favourite subject. It is different from primary school as we do more creative writing and analyse texts more.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed our Shakespeare unit as we got to perform the show.

  • The genre unit was interesting and opened my eyes to stories I never would have read.

  • Teachers in English push us to work to the best of our ability and always keep the classroom environment nice and fun.
