A Level English Language notes covering key concepts, topics, research studies and some exam and NEA advice for the AQA specification.

I assume if you’re here, you’re some kind of an English student. Most of this site is focused on English Language A Level material, but there is also some stuff for Language & Literature students, and there is a fair bit for Creative Writing students too.

You’ll find most material organised by topic/course in the top menu. If you’ve just started Eng Lang and are a bit overwhelmed, you might find the Frameworks stuff most helpful. This is where all the key terminology can be found. I’m in the process of updating that at the moment, to add in a few newly-required bits and pieces for the new specification, but rest assured – everything that is there is fine: nobody’s changed what a noun is!

If you need a break, why not check out my recommendations for a good read to relax with? I review a lot of new releases on my blog as well, mostly for Young Adults, as well as some for children and for adults. Alternatively, visit one of my YA Pinterest boards for more recommendations.
