English Language

The English Area realise that you may want to start preparing for A Level courses in English Language starting in September. Here are some ideas and resources that will help you to do that:

  • You’ll see we’ve attached the English and Media centre’s ‘Leaping into Language’ booklet – this has lots of great activities to start thinking about English Language in a deeper way – none of these tasks are compulsory, just dip in and out of it as you like. You will need the resource pack and audio files to carry out some of the activities.  Click on the links below to access to audio files:

  • In order to start thinking about language ‘in the real world’ a bit more, you might like to visit the Radio 4 ‘Word of Mouth’ podcasts site – have a browse and listen to some that you think you’ll find interesting – everything from the language of forensics to the language of advertising!

  • Note – you’ll receive two compulsory tasks to do before September when our formal induction starts later this summer.​​​​​​​
