English Language at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College

Course description

A Level should be your choice if you enjoy experimenting with speech and writing and have a keen interest in words. It combines well with other A Level subjects and is accepted at all universities. A study of the English Language will improve your written style and introduce you to the many ways in which language affects our everyday lives. If you are thinking of studying English at university, it is perfectly acceptable to take both English Language and English Literature.

The course combines an introduction to language theory and a practical researchbased approach to language use. You will learn how to analyse texts, both spoken and written, from different periods, and will have the opportunity to write for a wide variety of different audiences and purposes from prose fiction to newspaper articles.
