English Language at Ormiston Victory Academy

Course description

Studying English language can involve exploring almost any use of words. You will study the ways English language is used in a variety of forms, such as casual spoken conversations and advertising material, texts and tweets, and legal and medical discourse. You will also be able to study language from a range of periods and cultures, maybe engaging with the evolution of the English language from its Anglo-Saxon beginnings, maybe looking at the variety of forms of English across the world today. Some students choose to study the use and functions of language within the classroom context or in political speeches. Others discover a passion for finding out about children’s language acquisition or the way our minds process metaphors.
