English Language AS/A Level at Djanogly City Academy

Course description

In the AS course you are given a broad overview of the skills necessary to decode texts in the real world. These include, grammatical analysis as well as the study of spoken language. You will cover the ways in which factors such as gender, economic background and geographic location influence the language of the individual. You will also study the way in which language is used to create representations in the media and in everyday life.

In the second year you will investigate the history of the English language and study the reasons it has developed over time. You will also conduct a personal language investigation into an area of study you find particularly interesting. This fulfils the nonexam assessed section of the course.
