The literature studied in Level 3 English has helped me to understand how people tick. It has also helped me have a better appreciation of how our language choices are such powerful tools in communicating ideas. Level 3 English has helped set me up for my future study, especially in my Psychology course where I will need to be able to ‘read’ people’s behaviour. English has created a strong foundation for my future pathways.
