Hello, I can’t decide whether to take
English language and literature? Or English language? Has anyone done either?
I enjoy writing but not so much reading poems and books but I am thinking of persuing journalism so I don’t know..

I've studied literature as I adore poems and books, it even developed a love for plays in me. I think if you don't enjoy reading much you should take English Language. I had to read two books yearly really. Like over my summers I was expected to start on Gatsby.. Streetcar named desire.. Grapes of Wrath (much thicker) etc. Plus read poetry like Coleridge or Plath
I wanted to do Psych at uni anyway so I picked literature over language as I preferred idea of reading.

I do both my OCR Language doesn’t have a lot of opportunity for creative writing, except for coursework.
There are a lot of terms and theories to learn.

For literature you’ll definitely be studying some poems. If you don’t like reading books then it’s not the course for you hahahah
Although did journalism I’d imagine both would be useful.
