English A Language & Literature

English A, Standard Level is designed to meet the needs of students with a high level of competency in the target language (C1/C2), to make use of a critical literacy approach to texts. Additionally it requires good skills in formal analysis(Paper2). The Course requires access to an understanding of a very wide range of text forms, including visual and electronic forms ( Paper 1). This course is not a language acquisition course but a site of ongoing language development. Topics dealt with are the following:

  1. Language in Cultural Context
  2. Language and Mass Communication
  3. Texts and Contexts
  4. Literature – Critical Study
