Language Features in the New Level 2 Functional Skills English


Although perhaps not entirely unexpected, Level 2 Functional Skills English has changed and become something closer to the GCSE.  Whereas it used to focus on purely… functional English students must now learn about things like metaphors and similes.  Quite what will separate the two exams in the future is anyone’s guess.

However, needs must.  Here is a video which runs through the language features that students will need to learn.  It also shows where and how it will appear in the exam and there are even a few multiple choice questions at the end of the video.  Enjoy!  This is designed for Edexcel Functional Skills English.
