Nelson Functional English for SSS 2


NELSON FUNCTIONAL ENGLISH FOR SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS provides a practical approach to the teaching and learning of the English language. It is written in line with the Basic Education Curriculum for Nigerian secondary schools. The book pays detailed attention to all aspects of language use – speech, structure, vocabulary development, reading comprehension and writing – thus boosting students’ mastery of the use of English in oral and written forms. Comprehension passages, registers and examples are selected from diverse fields of discourse that will interest, inform, educate and appeal equally to students in the arts, sciences, commercial or technical classes. The writers of this book, being seasoned educationists and teachers of English as a Second Language, have prepared the series with the teacher in mind. It is therefore sectioned to take care of the typical Nigerian Senior Secondary School year and weekly timetable, thereby making the teacher’s work more effective.
