The course has three parallel aims:

- to improve students' oral and written proficiency in English;
- to introduce students to the theory and practice of basic literary criticism;
- to introduce linguistic concepts and apply them to English texts.

English I consists of three main parts (30 credits in total):

  • The Literature Studies course unit consists of a lecture series and a seminar series introducing students to English literatures and basic literary analysis.
  • The Linguistics course unit consists of lectures on linguistic concepts and a seminar series teaching students to observe language phenomena and to understand analytic concepts.
  • Language Proficiency is practiced throughout the term both in the lectures and seminars of the literary and the linguistic course units.
