A Level English Literature
Why choose English Literature?
Are you interested by a wide range of literature? Are you confident when discussing your opinions of texts? Would you like to explore how meaning is shaped in both new and old writing? This popular course will enable you to do all of these and more.
How will I learn?
You will learn about different approaches to a text and about how to write about literature texts in a depth appropriate to Advanced level. The lessons will provide opportunities for discussion and sharing your views with others. As part of your private study in English, you will also undertake some research into the social, historical and cultural background of the texts you study. Outside the lessons there are English-related activities available such as trips to study conferences; to the theatre and, occasionally, to the cinema.
