English: Level 2

Course · 30 credits

Description

When you have finished English: Level 1 (ENGA04) you will be eligible for English: Level 2 (ENGA22). This course is more advanced than English: Level 1, and the academic level is higher. You learn more about English linguistics and literature, but you also improve your spoken and written English. Your vocabulary gets even larger, just like your English proficiency in general. Taking English: Level 2 is a natural step for anyone who wants to be really good at English and who also is interested in learning more about the English language and about literature in English. In today's globalized world, strong English skills are essential in almost every profession.  Having the continuation course on your CV will set you apart on the job market.

If you have studied English at a university elsewhere, you need to have finished that course to be eligible. If you haven't yet finished it, you may apply for a waiver. Please see the instructions here: http://www.sol.lu.se/engelska/for-studenter/dispens/

 

The contents of the course (English level 2, ENGA22)

This course is a very interesting mix of English proficiency, literature and linguistics. Just like English: Level 1, this course consists of a number of modules that run partly in parallel:

  • English Grammar  (7.5 credits)
  • English Literary History (7.5 credits)
  • Linguistic Analysis (7.5 credits)
  • Literary Analysis (7.5 credits)

All the modules build on what you learnt in English: Level 1. This also goes for those modules that don't have exact English: Level 1 counterparts.

In English Grammar you learn more about English grammar and how it can be described and explained. You will also learn more about other aspects of the English language, for instance English word formation. Athe the end of the course there is a written test on English grammar and other aspects of the English language. The teaching is set up as "Grammar days", with a lecture in the morning and a aseminar in the afternoon, with exercises and group work in between.

The module called English Literary History deals with important parts of the entire history of English literature. You learn about the connections between literature, history, and culture, so this is a kind of continuation of the ENGA01 module called History and Culture, even though the main focus here is on literature, rather than culture and history. The module is examined through a final written exam.

Linguistic Analysis is a module where you get introduced to four important areas of English linguistics, typically morphology, syntax, semantics, and  language history. This module is both theoretical and practical in nature. You learn about the therory behind  a certain type of analysis, and you get to try out this type of analysis on English senetences, phrases or words. You also learn the basics of writing academic essays on  linguistic topics.This module is examined through a number of papers or other types of written examination.

Literary Analyis is a module in which you get further training within the field of academic writing, but it is also a module where you learn more about literary analysis. You will produce a literary paper in which you make use of the discussions in class and where you analyse a text using the methods of analysis you have been introduced to in this course.

 

After the course (English level 2, ENGA22)

This course makes you eligible for English: Level 3, which is the BA course you need in order to get a BA (Bachelor's degree) in English. Having 60 credits of English, in combination with other relevant university courses, also makes you considerably more competitive on the job market, for instance if you would like to work abroad or in companies or organisations with international profiles.
