About Your Course

The English Language is an incredible asset for those who take the time to learn it. Not only is it the language of business, but it is also one of the most spoken languages worldwide.

They are also capable of communicating with people in a range of scenarios, in addition to having the ability to write imaginatively, and adapt their tone and style of writing for different forms, purposes and audiences.

During the course, you will explore numerous non-fiction, poetry and prose texts, as well as study the concept of both transactional and imaginative writing. With the knowledge gained, you will develop the ability to read and respond to material from various sources, compare texts and analyse how writers achieve their effects, construct and convey meaning in written language, and be able to change your style for different audiences and purposes.
