So...am thinking of teaching A-Level English Language at some point because I find the subject extremely interesting (been reading some Lang. textbooks). Problem is, I don't have an A-Level in the subject and I studied English Lit. at uni (not Linguistics). I'm also a bit apprehensive about the potential workload... how conversant with language theorists and language studies should a new teacher of A-Level be? The reading lists that I've seen are intimidating! So: Would you need an A-Level and/or degree specifically in English Language/Linguistics to teach English Language at A-Level? 2. Is the reading workload (i.e. for subject knowledge) manageable? If anyone can help, thank you!
