English Language is a popular A Level appealing to students because it examines texts in the real world such as adverts, speeches and newspaper articles. The emphasis is on understanding how and why language is used in specific ways and developing knowledge of key terminology which will help you analyse texts in a concise and focused style.

What Our Students Say

What I enjoy most about English Language is that it is one of the only few academic subjects here at Carmel that enables you to be creative. It has provided me with transferable skills which I can utilise in my other subjects.
