Are Language Arts and English the same thing? We have been doing Bob Jones English and I am going to buy the next book, but I was wondering if maybe we needed to try something else. When I look at books they are called these two things. Before I go and look I was wondering if there is a difference? We are required to do "Language Arts". Is that the same thing as English? Is that all the parts of speech plus Writing? It seems like there is not so much writing a "paper" and creative writing in the "English" book. We will be doing 5th-6th.
