Studying English Language at Carmel has allowed me to gain invaluable skills such as critically analysing information and communicating effectively in class discussions on a variety of themes & topics such as speech, language in the 21st century and even my own writing.
I particularly enjoy the creative writing element of the subject, as we are challenged to write a wide-range of genres that we’ve not tried before e.g. script writing, monologues and blogs. Also, there is a very fascinating component where we look at ‘Language Issues’, studying a number of case studies and theories on Standard & Non-standard English, Power and Situation.
The staff at Carmel are committed to making sure that you succeed in the subject – they are always there to support you through whole class feedback and individual targets.
I would recommend choosing A Level English Language as it allows you to be very analytical and process information quite quickly. It also opens up a broad range of careers if you feel unsure of a particular career route.
