About Your Course

As the language of business, and one of the most spoken worldwide, the English language is immensely valuable to learn. Though it’s one thing to be able to read it and write the words, and another to understand it in its entirety.

A GCSE or iGCSE in English Language provides you with the opportunity to do just that, as it enables you to delve into the constructs, use of sounds and variations of the English language. All of which provides you with important skills for success in life.

Studying English Language will help you to read fluently, write effectively and present your thoughts and ideas coherently. It also enhances your ability to communicate with other people in any scenario. As well as enable you to write imaginatively, and adapt your tone and style of writing for different forms, purposes and audiences.

During this online course, you will explore a host of non-fiction, poetry and prose texts, and study the concept of both transactional and imaginative writing. Through these course components, you will develop the ability to read and respond to material from a variety of sources, make comparisons between texts and analyse the ways in which writers achieve their effects, as well as construct and convey meaning in written language, matching style to audience and purpose.
