English Media Centre A-Level English Language Conference
Students Attend an English Language Conference
Recently, Mrs James drove six Year 13 A-Level students to The King's School in Macclesfield for the February 2023 emagazine English Language conference.
Despite the long journey, they drove through some spectacular scenery and enjoyed a really great conference. The speakers were excellent and covered a diverse range of topics from analysing performed language in 'Game of Thrones', how to spot deliberate deception, to how perception affects how we hear standard English.
The day made ideal revision, with exams approaching, helping to consolidate existing knowledge as well introducing new ideas. The speakers were:
Professor Julia Snell (Leeds University)
Dr Paul Flanagan (Chester University)
Dr Khawla Badwan (Manchester Metropolitan University)
Professor Dawn Archer (Manchester Metropolitan University)
Dr Rob Drummond (Manchester Metropolitan University)
