This guide focuses the teaching of English upon mastery of language through the teaching of literature, grammar and composition as inter-related, mutually re-enforcing studies and practice. It frees the English lesson for the practice of language skills through classic literature and daily composition. The result is the mastery of language, the foundation of all education and the key to success in every area of life. It also builds the Biblical worldview in demonstrating the unique and providential role of English among languages. Teaching English is an extension of the literature program that develops communication and writing skills, reading comprehension and public speaking.
