Objectives of the study

SAT Writing and Language

Students gain critical knowledge of the four major skill areas that the SAT is testing in the Writing and Language section of the exam. These major skill areas help students to improve their editorial skills in both 'little picture' areas such as grammar and punctuation, in addition to 'big picture' areas, which focus on supporting, organising and improving upon main ideas.


SAT Writing and Language includes 5 modules of 3 hours each.

Each module focuses on a specific aspect of SAT Writing and Language. All 5 modules form a programme of 15 hours which transforms every aspect of the learner's written eloquence.
