If you’re an adult student wishing to pursue a college diploma program or a technical trade, this is the course for you. In English 30-2 Adult, you’ll explore a variety of texts (visuals, poetry, modern drama, film, and a novel). You’ll also receive lots of instruction and practice writing in a variety of contexts, especially in preparation for the required provincial diploma examination.
In addition to the required materials below, ONE novel is required. Students may choose any novel from the following list:

Note: This course is intended for adult students pursuing college diploma programs or most technical trades (note that requirements for trades vary, so we recommend that you investigate prior to registering in this course). Though this course has fewer graded assignments than ADLC’s regular English 30-2 course, it satisfies all the criteria mandated by Alberta Education.

If you don’t have an Alberta high school diploma, or are from out of province, we recommend that you complete the English Placement Exercise prior to enrolling in the adult-level ELA course.
TWO films are required.
Students must have access to the film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) and one other film from the following list:
