English Language/Literature
KS5 >

A series of resources to support WJEC’s GCE English Language specification, ideal for an introduction to A2 studies, particularly Unit 3, Language Over Time. The resources consist of a range of interactive activities and discussion points covering such key questions as ‘What happens when a language changes?’ and ‘What changes a language?’ Students are encouraged to ask questions about texts, identify grammatical patterns and consider different varieties of English, including Standard English, 1950s Slang, Informal Speech and child language. Worksheets and information sheets accompany the interactive resources. It is strongly advisable to read through the Teacher Notes before using this resource
