Sixth Form Campus
For those who have a genuine interest in the ways that English language is used in the world. You should have a confident knowledge of current affairs as well as an understanding of world history.
Have you ever wondered why we use certain words and phrases in our spoken exchanges? Using linguistic terminology and concepts, you will develop the ability to see what language choices reveal about a person’s opinion of themselves, their listeners and what their real purposes are in the communication.
Explore these ideas as well as a wide range of language issues. You will see how changes in language over time have been influenced by key historical events. You will also explore how children learn to communicate based on their environmental influences - like family interactions, television and books.
