Are you an international student keen to learn more about the English language and deepen your understanding of English-speaking cultures? This module gives students from all disciplines an opportunity to read and discuss both classic and modern writers in English from Charles Dickens to Benjamin Zephaniah. This is a wonderful place to share your ideas and thoughts, learn more vocabulary and gain new perspectives. This is not a course in expert literary criticism so come along whatever your discipline is. All you need is a love of culture and an open mind. 

Key skills: analysing literature, using rhetorical devices, arguing and debating
