About the Course

Course Structure:

Voices in Speech and Writing 

This component has an explicit focus on the concept of ‘voice’. You will study how spoken voices are formed and how written voices created in non-literary and digital texts. You will study how texts are formed for specific audiences, purposes and genres and learn how to craft their written work for a range of contexts.

Varieties in Language and Literature

This component focuses on the ways in which different writers convey their thoughts or ideas towards a theme in literary texts. Teaching and wider reading will develop your understanding of how writers use language techniques and literary devices to craft their pieces and communicate ideas or issues. You will study Stoker’s Dracula and the poetry of Christina Rossetti in this unit.
