Career Connections

English is a major branch of the language arts and its main focus is on the written word. However, a broader, more commonly accepted definition would include the study of literature, speech, and writing, in all forms; the study of English orients students to the discipline of thinking. Students learn to read and listen to their own speaking and writing, to evaluate the speaking and writing of others critically and to express their ideas and sentiments coherently. They also study how to revise to accommodate the needs of various audiences.
