Is this course right for me?

This course prepares you for external assessment in the subject (WJEC). Many universities and employers ask for English Language GCSE at Grade C or above. If you have not achieved this whilst at school, Grŵp Llandrillo Menai will provide opportunities for you to improve your grades, to enable you to progress onto the appropriate further or higher education programme, or into employment.

Or perhaps you just wish to study English for the joy of learning and the love of the subject? You will be very welcome on our course! The course involves learning and developing different writing techniques and writing for different audiences/purposes. Speaking and Listening is also part of the assessment.

This subject can be studied alone or alongside another programme of study. At some campuses, this course is only available as a resit, for those who wish to improve their grade.
