It also has access to laptop trolleys enabling each student to type their work independently or do some research in class. The English department is also proud of its choice of books. Not only do the students work on classic books like Shakespeare or Dickens but they also have a chance to discover brand-new fashionable novels. The books the students read are indeed changed and up-dated regularly to captivate the students even more.
