I did Eng Lit- I loooved it
Both are seen as facilitating subjects. Lit is more to do with books where are Lang is more the linguistic side of the English Language. Also where as Lit at a level is similar to GCSE Lit (but better obvs) Lang at A-level is realkly different and way more interesting apparently. So ye. If you like reading and writing- Lit is the way to go. Still have to write a lot in Lang tho so don't do either if you hate essays.

I did English language, enjoyed it somewhat at GCSE but was a lot better at A Level. I think it depends a lot on the teacher though because it can be taught badly through overuse of textbooks, definitely a big no when it comes to teaching English Language well.

Lang was way better at a level than GCSE. It much more interesting as you start to actually learn about the language. For example in he 12 we looked at language and gender and how it differs between the two etc. This year we learnt about language change and the evolution of language, and also the acquisition of language by children. I've heard the course is much easier than lit, I can say it's not that difficult and it's fairly easy to achieve high grades if you practice essay writing and follow the mark scheme.

Literature is the most respected out of that group. It is, to my knowledge, the only facilitating subject from that (according to various compiled lists).
