English Language & Literature

Welcome to English Language & Literature!

Have you ever wondered what a writer is trying to imply in their work? How they create a ‘character’ who seems real, who you could meet? How you are persuaded to visit Paris just by the words on a piece of paper?

This exciting course will enable you to explore these ideas and more using linguistic terminology and literary concepts.

You will study an anthology of short extracts centred around Paris; these range from websites to diary entries, short stories and audio guides, to name but a few. You are assigned the task of writing pieces which could be published in national newspapers or novels. This course is unique in that it allows you to analyse both language and literature studying a range of novels, plays and non-fiction.

You will develop your ability to produce essays about the choices writers make, and the course will allow you to develop your skills as a writer.
