What’s it all about?

English Language is one of the most powerful tools you could ever hope to possess. If you decide to study English Language you will embark upon the study of linguistics that will empower you and enable you to become a speaker and writer of language. Your course will begin with a venture into the world of linguistic methods – here you will uncover the mysteries of topics such as pragmatics; phonology; lexis; semantics; discourse; grammar and graphology. These magnificent methods will help you to uncover the intricacies of language choices that speakers and writers make.

Once you have mastered these tools of analysis you will be able to deconstruct almost any text and savour the excitement of implicature and syntactical ambiguity that writers and orators employ; skills that you can use in your working life, in your speech and most importantly in your written communication

You will need GCSE English Language at grade 6, in addition to the general entry criteria.
