All potential employers will be scrutinising your CV to see if you've achieved a good pass in English Language and it'll be next to impossible to get to university without one. The ability to communicate, to analyse meaning and to use language to express yourself concisely, coherently and effectively is one of the most important skills you need whether it be in your career, in further study or in your personal life. So, yes, it's pretty important.

What you'll be studying is how the language is applied in different contexts and for different reasons. You'll be speaking, listening, writing andanalysing and learning how to use language confidently and accurately. It does include imaginative and creative writing but will also furnish you with other skills such as analysis of meaning, pr

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Compare and contrast the poems "Vultures" and "Night of the Scorpion", analysing how they communicate a sense of their cultural background.

    "Conclusion I prefer 'vultures' as I like the way in which evil is contained in good. This is shown in the phrase "in the very germ of that kindred love is lodged the perpetuity of evil". The evil is described in phrases such as "picked the eyes of a swollen corpse", "ate the things in its bowel" and "fumes of human roast". The good however is conjured up by "inclined affectionately" and "tender offspring. I feel it is more of a poem compared to Night of the Scorpion because Scorpion is a very much narrative style of writing. It is too narrative for my liking."

  • Compare the way a current affairs issue is reported in a tabloid and a broadsheet. The articles explore events surrounding two teenagers who have been stabbed.

    "To conclude, I have come to a final decision that the tabloid article shows the full horror of the tragedy because the information in the tabloid gets right to the point about what's happened. The information about the tragedy is a lot clearer in the tabloid because it is much more graphic and is also easier to understand. The powerful headings, subheadings and words make the articles very effective. The most powerful parts of the tabloid is where it talks about how brutal the murder of Shakilus Townsend was, also in the tabloid it tells you about facts and figures which tell you about what's happening with knife and how bad the situation is getting in London, this makes the article more powerful. Whereas the in-depth information in the broadsheet article will make people lose interest quickly because most typical British readers don't want to go deep into the story. So on balance I think that the tabloid article is the best and most powerful article because I think it is much easier to read and much easier to keep interest in. 1,214 words"

  • How free are we in the UK and how does our freedom compare to other people around the world?

    "In conclusion, all of us in England are very lucky to have the right of freedom even though we have some things we are not allowed to say and do we are a very free country. We are trying our hardest to help others in the situation of not having the same human rights. Compared to countries like India, Africa and china we are very lucky to have the right of movement, freedom of speech and the right to life. If we wish to help others in these countries we can give money to charity and maybe even join a group of people who support others around the world. If we join amnesty and send one letter that one letter will give someone who is less fortunate than us to get a bed to sleep on. The other organisations like liberty and Greenpeace have many different ways to help people in other places like Guantanamo get better lives by protesting and spreading news of what these people are going through."
