English Literature

A wonderful course for creative minds! We encourage your students to engage with literature in an interactive and practical way. Your students will gain knowledge from the text but will also be expected to participate in practical tasks that will lead to a further understanding.  We aim to make literature come to life for your students.  You can choose from a selection of different English with Literature modules depending on your length of stay.  LanguageUK will provide your group with a specially-designed programme to meet your needs and requirements.

Designed For

  • Students in their final years of school and who are starting to think about their future in further education, and are interested in literature, history, philosophy and perhaps the classics
  • Students who are already taking English Literature modules as an option at school and who wish to complement their studies with this course
  • Students who love books and reading
  • Students who don’t love books and reading – we might be able to change this!
