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. As such, many employers are looking for candidates who not only speak the language but understand it in its entirety. 
 
This is because those who are proficient in the English Language are likely to be able to read fluently, write effectively and present their concepts and ideas coherently. 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.
 
If you want to gain an academic qualification in English Language, , this International GCSE (iGCSE) in English Language provides you with an internationally recognised GCSE equivalent qualification. 
 
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.
 
The course is aimed at learners who want to achieve Level 2 English Language and progress to higher levels. Care was taken in the design of this online course to ensure the online materials and texts studied are engaging, suitable for all students, and that they include a diverse range of writers.
