Course Overview

The English language can be used to inspire, motivate, and challenge us in countless different ways, and is an essential part of the way we interpret and appreciate the world around us. If you’d like to enhance your ability to critically analyse and engage with a wide variety of texts and genres, then English Language IGCSE is the right choice. 

You’ll examine both contemporary and classic texts including novel excerpts from the 20th and 21st century, and analyse the author’s style and intent. You’ll discover how various forms of writing are constructed, including persuasive and descriptive texts. As you progress, you’ll be able to write confidently and concisely in a range of formats such as letters, reports, and interviews.

This course has been designed to provide learners with an appropriate challenge whilst ensuring that the assessment and texts are, as far as possible, accessible to all students. It’s designed specifically to be studied online in your own time and space, and you’ll have unlimited tutor support, a clear induction, and well-structured assignments to help you to develop the skills and knowledge needed to prepare for the exam.

Entry requirements

Difficulty
Level two: the equivalent difficulty of a GCSE, usually suitable for most learners of all ages.
Entry requirements

GCSE English language assumes a good command of both spoken and written English. The course will expect you to read and analyse a range of texts from 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Therefore this course is not always suitable for those for whom English is not their first language. If you’re unsure, get in touch and we can offer you some guidance.
