• DP Language & Literature (HL)

    The Diploma Program (DP) Language & Literature course offers a broad range of texts, and students grow to appreciate a language’s complexity, wealth and subtleties in a variety of contexts. Students are able to develop a personal appreciation of language and literature; critical-thinking skills in their interaction with a range of texts from different periods, styles, text-types and literacy forms; an understanding of the formal, stylistic and aesthetic qualities of texts; strong powers of expression, both written and oral; an appreciation of cultural differences in perspective; an understanding of how language challenges and sustains ways of thinking. Through studies in language and literature, the DP aims to develop a student's lifelong interest in language and literature, and a love for the richness of human expression.
