English Language is a fascinating, varied course. Build upon your success at GCSE and develop highly marketable skills in terms of close reading analysis, written expression and knowledge about the power of language. Study and produce pieces of journalism; experiment by varying your written style for different purposes and audiences, including pieces of narrative fiction. Find out about the psychology of how children acquire language and learn how and why an obscure Germanic dialect came to be the most widely-spoken and influential tongue on Planet Earth. Conduct an independent language investigation in which you collect and dissect your own chosen linguistic data – such as sports commentary, political speeches and advertising across the ages.
