English Language


AQA English Language A level enables you to acquire knowledge and understanding of many aspects of language including how the English Language works. You will learn how to convey meaning in different ways and how to analyse language in use.

Topics include spoken and written language, how and why language has changed over time, how and why language varies according to the context in which it is used, the relationship between language and society and how children acquire language.

Students will learn grammar explicitly through analysis and will develop skills in close examination of texts.

The course will be assessed by an examination, but students will also have a coursework element (10%) which is a creative piece inspired by their knowledge and understanding of other texts.
