About Course

Are you studying for your A-level in English? Do you want to make sure that you hit the top marks? Well, this course is for you! It is full of powerful knowledge designed to make sure you unlock your full potential.

This course combines knowledge about the two branches of English: language and literature. That way, you get a full understanding of how the two inform each other. This will help you to produce the most amazing essays possible.

After all, it’s like Roman Jakobson said:

“A linguist deaf to the poetic functions of language and a literary scholar indifferent to linguistics are equally fragrant anachronisms.”

From ‘Language in Literature’ by Roman Jakobson, 1987

In other words, it doesn’t matter if your passion is English language or literature. You have to have a good understanding of both to be the best academic you can. This course will offer that to you!
