Me. Definitely. English is my best subject (although Ancient History is pretty damn close to that).kobz said:If English was't compulsory....Who would SERIOUSLY pick it????????? lol
That's the thing. You can't expect people to analyse bs and apply those skills you've mentioned along with it. Even if it's not bs, who would seriously believe in those texts being read.Triangulum said:The point isn't to educate you about journeys. It's to develop transferable skills like critical analysis and depth of thinking, as well as to improve your writing and speaking generally.
I agree wholeheartedly. My issue with English being compulsory is *why* it is compulsory. My understanding is that it was made compulsory to ensure that every student who completes HSC has a thorough knowledge of the English Language and can speak and write fluently. It was made to count in the calculation of the UAI so that we don't end up with a society of doctors and lawyers from Non-English-Speaking countries that can't speak a word of English. This I think is a valid reason to make English compulsory.Abhorsen said:They could at least rename it Literature...
