5.0 out of 5 stars For students and teachers 11 May 2009
An excellent text for both teachers of English Language at A-level, and students taking such a course. I teach AQA English Language and Literature and use this text to inform my teaching of the Language and Gender module. Good price on here and indispensable for students serious about getting a good grade.
