Fifteen King George V  College (KGV) English Language students explored the way the English language has changed over the years while visiting the department of Linguistics and English Language at Lancaster University for a teachers and Sixth Formers English Language Event.

They were given a guided tour of the campus by student ambassadors, really helping them get to know a likely university destination.

The students also attended talks on accents of English, watching ultrasound images of the speaker’s tongue as he talked, and listened to and Kanye West when exploring some reasons for some of the ways language is changing.

They also watched Monty Python to find out about language and power and then used their forensic skills to analyse text messages used in a murder case.

It was all part of their preparation for the A2 and good fun was had by all!
