Overview

In this English Language with French, Mandarin or Spanish (Hons) course from De Montfort University you will examine where English has come from and how it may evolve in an era of global change and technological innovation. You will discover how it works, both as a complex system for embodying ideas, emotions and beliefs, and as a means of influencing, persuading and moving others. 

You will develop a set of linguistic and analytical skills, which will help you become a highly-skilled communicator. This is a course about how language shapes your world; learn how language works, and the world will open up to you.

You will develop your skills of written and spoken communication of two of the world's most powerful languages. English is currently the world's most widely spoken language, and you will be able to study it in combination with French (an official language in 32 countries, and with a projected growth to 750 million people worldwide by 2050), Mandarin Chinese (currently the language with the greatest number of native speakers) or Spanish (over 470 million speakers worldwide including in Central and South American countries and the USA).
