Chloe Davies, BA Hons English Language (Graduated 2013)
I have learned a lot from being a student in the Linguistics and English Language Department (LAEL). One of the reasons I decided to go to Lancaster was because there is so much freedom in your module choices. I have studied topics relating to education, advertising and hard-core grammar. I went from not knowing what Linguistics was to being on the executive committee for the LAEL undergraduate society! This year the society has had more guest lecturers and socials than ever before. We try to reach the same academic standards as the department and I think we succeeded! There is such a high standard among the staff here, a group of us studying in LAEL recently worked together to recommend one of our lecturers for ‘Lecturer of the Year’. We did this because like all of the staff in the Department, he was enthusiastic and hardworking and as students we are really passionate and dedicated to the Department.
