outcomes in terms of the stipulated assessment criteria:

Learners can understand and explain that language have certain features and conventions which can
be manipulated. Learners can apply this knowledge and adapt language to suit different contexts,
audiences and purposes.

Candidates are unlikely to achieve all the specific outcomes, to the standards described in the

have been included in the body of the unit standard.
