Pathway

Level 2 English, Level 2 English

Studying English opens up a world of inspiration and creativity, while also developing skills that are essential for today's global environment. During English classes, students will have had some exposure to a wide variety of text types, including poetry, novel, film, short story, non-fiction and the classics. They will choose to read for pleasure and be open to new reading experiences. The aim is to develop a sophisticated understanding of the ways in which those who create texts shape the response of the reader and a healthy scepticism about information and texts, especially electronic media and ideologies. Being able to communicate well allows you to broaden your world, from job opportunities to the ability to relate to people. Developing reading and writing skills and critical analysis is important for every other school subject.
