English Language at The Sir John Colfox School

Course description

English Language at AS bears some similarity to English Language GCSE. GCSE students learn to analyse texts for their content and style, and this is extended as AS level as students are taught specific methods and terminology to do this in far greater detail. A wide range of texts are studied At A Level, students study how language has changed over time (since 1700) and discover how children learn to speak, read and write. Students have to apply this knowledge to a range of extracts which they have to analyse and comment on. Coursework at A Level asks students to undertake a language investigation on a topic of their choice and to produce a media text on this topic. This course is ideal for students who want to know a lot more about the English language and how it works.
