Literature, composition, and history: all part of the study of English
From a little-known dialect in a backwater of the Roman Empire, the English language has grown over the last 500 years until it is spoken by more than one billion people as a first or second language. Used as an official language in many parts of the world for business and scientific purposes, English also has a rich history in literature dating back some 1500 years.
