English as a language we would recognise today was first spoken in early medieval times and is now one of the most spoken on earth. You get to read novels and poems instead of textbooks and reports. If you’re someone who spends their summers with their nose in a book or writing short stories, you already know this is for you.

And of course there is more to English than just reading your favourite books, and if you’ve never read anything more complex than Harry Potter then you may want to expand your mind.

There will be an opportunity to study modern literature, theatre, film, or even do a bit of creative writing yourself.
