Your next steps...
English Language is a subject which is very well regarded by higher education institutions. Though it is something we use every day, this is an opportunity to understand the mechanic of our native language. Therefore, it complements any educational course that a student might follow and provides a new perspective on most professions. It is widely accepted for careers in teaching, journalism, the media, social work, marketing, publicity, and many more.
