English Language is a truly gripping course that delves into the mechanics of language. We explore how language is impacted depending on context, identity and time. There is significant overlap with the social sciences in the Child Language module, in which we examine how children learn to acquire spoken and written language. Socio-Historical knowledge complements the Language Variation Across Time unit, in which we explore how influencing factors have caused the evolution of the English Language across time. The Investigating Language Unit, and Coursework Unit, permits students to undertake in depth research in an area of language that really interests them, and construct their own original pieces.
