ENGLISH LANGUAGE

 

TRAINING STUDENTS TO THINK AND ANALYSE, TO QUESTION AND INTERROGATE, TO RESEARCH AND INVESTIGATE, AND TO BE REFLECTIVE AND CRITICAL.

 

WHAT YOU STUDY

You will study a wide range of texts and discourses. You will create texts and critically reflect on your own processes of production whilst analysing the texts produced by others.

 

HOW YOU STUDY

If you are interested in language and want to develop your knowledge about its structure and functions, the ways it has changed over time and how it varies as well as develop your skills as a writer then this course will be well suited to you.

English Language will enable you to:

• experience and respond to a range of texts through discussion, analysis and creative writing

• explore how purpose, audience and context impact upon language

• use linguistic methods to investigate a variety of texts and apply these within your own work.

You will study English Language through class teaching. There will also be individual investigation of texts with teacher support and guidance. There is plenty of opportunity to discuss issues and ideas and you will be expected to connect this with your experience of language and research by linguists. You will be expected to carry out wider reading and to complete tasks independently.

 

PROGRESSION TO UNIVERSITY

English Language can lead to a wide range of options when you progress to university including English degrees, Teaching and Journalism.

Effective communication and articulation of ideas are both essential work skills and highly valued by employers.
