English Language B (2705)

This is our current A-level specification.
For our new specifications see:

AS and A-level English Language (7701, 7702)

This four-unit specification helps students use, understand and analyse spoken and written language for particular audiences and contexts.

Students develop their ability to express themselves in speech and writing, producing texts for different audiences, purposes and in different genres.

Less theory-driven than A-level English Language A , the course is ideal for those wanting to study English Language, Linguistics or English Studies in higher education.
