English language is a great course to study because it provides you with a great grounding in the skills you’ll need while you’re studying your other A Level courses, at university and in your chosen career.
You’ll be someone who enjoys reading, writing and communicating and who wants to develop their abilities in these areas. You’ll have the opportunity to explore areas which you’re interested in as well looking at the impact language has on society.
You will study this course alongside 2 or 3 other A Levels and you will be able to select your chosen subjects when you apply online.
This course is perfect if you enjoy analysing spoken and written language and you are a keen reader and writer. Your technical vocabulary and communication skills will increase significantly. It combines well with a wide range of other A Level subjects.
- Language, the individual and society (written paper)
- Language diversity and change (written paper)
- A non-exam assessment (NEA) which involves a language investigation of your choice, allowing you the freedom to explore your own areas of interest.
