    yes?

    Jokes :P

    Well, personally not a joke, but I'm sure many will find lots of arguments to prove me wrong. Probably stuff to do with culture etc

    Edit: This is, by the way, a very biased opinion, but I will be hard to find an unbiased one i think

    You need to understand the evolution of language in order to understand older literature, so no, it's not really. I think it would be an interesting course, but I'm applying for English Literature instead.

    I'm undecided tbh. I mean they offer English Language and Literature at Oxford as opposed to straight literature and unis do ask for at least a B/C in English Language. However, I can't help but feel that it is somewhat... meh. That being said, I have applied for English Language and Literature at least so I guess the proof of the pudding will be in the eating. That is if Warwick rejects and York/Nottingham turn out to be crap when I visit them, which is unlikely. But I digress.

    Oh come on, it's the study and knowledge of the workings of a language. Despite the fact that we can already speak/read/write it, not many people are actually taught grammar in English classes at school. That was removed from the National curriculum to 'improve creativity' (which is a mystery to me how creativity can exist without a framework)

    Essentially, no. What a load of old cobblers. It's not a Mickey Mouse degree at all.

    Just do a course you are genuinely interested in. It's about learning for pleasure too.
