A Level English Literature and Language

Why Study?

Which is most powerful: The spoken or the written word? How do modern novels reflect the complex cultural contexts of our contemporary societies? How do people use language to assert power over others? This specially-designed integrated course allows you to deepen your understanding of both language and literature; it will enrich your experience of spoken and written communication. Designed to ensure the right balance and coverage of the two disciplines, this specification enables you to see how linguistic and literary methods are related and to explore these links in your work.
