What is Academic English?

English is the primary global language of business, academia and international relations; it is the global lingua franca. A-level courses at Abbey College Cambridge and throughout the UK are taught in English, it will also be the language of instruction for the degree courses that you will go on to study at university.

Why study Academic English?

Whilst the overall benefits that mastering the English language brings are huge, if your primary goal is to be accepted into your chosen university in the UK or another English speaking country, you will be required to demonstrate a specified level of proficiency in English. This is usually demonstrated by a score in a recognised English language test, such as IELTS. Beyond this, a high level of English will have a very positive influence on your A levels, allowing you to understand more, write better, and achieve your maximum potential in your exam results. Also, it will help you get the most out of your time in the UK, allowing you to enjoy more clubs and activities, make friends, and better understand the country you are living in. Finally, looking ahead to your future, good quality English is almost certain to prove invaluable in your career, allowing you to work in an international context and access areas which might otherwise have been closed off to you....
