A Level English Language

Studying this course will enable you to develop a deep knowledge of how the English language works and a secure understanding of how language users communicate. You will explore data, transcripts and examples of language in use and apply concepts and methods appropriate for the analysis of language. You will undertake an independent investigation into an area of particular and individual interest at the end of Year 12 (in discussion with your teacher) and develop your skills as producers and interpreters of language. You will engage creatively with topical issues relevant to language in use and develop your interest in and enjoyment of English. You will also develop an ability to evaluate attitudes towards language and its users, engaging with current debates about language use and investigating how different contexts across time and place affect language use.
