16 Things You’ll Probably Never Hear An English Literature Student Say
Yeah, we’re good with words… just don’t be surprised if you never hear of any these ones come out of our mouths.
1. “Of course I’ve never written an essay right before the deadline.”
2. “No, I’ve never been smug about being a better writer than people on other courses.”
3. “There are no cool modules to look forward to. At all. They’re just so boring.”
C.S Lewis, J.R.R Tolkien and J.K Rowling as options for one of my modules next year. I love english lit.

4. “Film adaptions are normally better than the book.”
5. “There is probably only one way to way to interpret a book.”
6. “I don’t get much free time outside of studying.”
7. “Everyone always reads ALL of the books on the module.”
8. “Reading week is only ever used to catch up on the reading.”
9. “We never use SparkNotes to help with seminar work.”
What our tutors don’t know, can’t hurt.
10. “Of course I know what every word ending with ‘-ism’ means.”
My course may aswell be the study of words ending in 'ism'
