AS/A2 English Language at Queen Elizabeth School

Course description

Have you ever wondered why people from different regions speak with different accents or dialects? Do you ever think about why we have odd sayings in English like “kick the bucket”? Or why we have two words for the same thing, for example king and sovereign?

This course can help you to explain these mysteries about our language, but it does so much more.  It hones your reading and writing skills superbly, preparing you for further study whatever your chosen career after sixth form.  It makes you rather good at reading between the lines and spotting “spin” (quite a useful life skill!).  It also helps you to understand more about spoken language, including how we learn to speak, how language is a form of behaviour and why language is so closely bound up with our ideas about social class.
