A Level English Language study will feature some of the following elements across the two years. On this course, learners will be required to show knowledge and understanding of spoken and written language use in a range of contexts, including how texts and discourses are shaped and interpreted.
Study of spoken language and other language issues such as language and power.
Study of earlier periods of English and more modern areas such as social media
Creative writing – fiction and non- fiction texts.
A language investigation into a topic of your choice.
You will develop your analytical and interpretative skills in relation to spoken and written texts. Through independent research, classroom discussion and essay writing you will develop your interpersonal and communication skills.
Many of our A Level Language students will go on to study Linguistics or a related degree like journalism.
If you like creative writing, looking at conversations and thinking about how children learn to speak and interact – then this is the course for you!
