Introduction

English Language A level is a challenging academic course which is respected by universities. It enables you to look under the surface of language and to see how meaning is often conveyed in ways that are not explicit. It is a subject that matches up well with other humanities subjects.

When doing your GCSEs in English language and perhaps English Literature you will have commented on how language can be used to achieve effects and you will have created a variety of texts, like letters and descriptions. You will have had the chance to write creatively. All of this experience is a sound basis for undertaking this A level which takes the analysis of language much further. We develop a methodology for the analysis of language and apply it to language as it occurs in a wide range of contexts, from children's spoken and written language to the language of advertisements and the mass media. We also look at how language has changed from 1550 to the present day.
