The Department of English offers various courses of ESP:

  • EFL,
  • Business English,
  • Scholarly English in the majoring field,
  • Technical Translation,
  • Professionally oriented English.

All the courses of ESL are professionally oriented. They’ll help develop the students’ knowledge of English grammar and their ability to speak and write in English as well as translate from and into English for business and study in the field. The courses are aimed at students who can write and speak basic English and wish to strengthen their main English language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Of course other skills such as pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary (professionally oriented) and spelling all play a role in effective English communication, so they are a focus of our attention too.
