ENG 101 is a compulsory course for freshman students. ENG 101 focuses on the cognitive skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. The course uses current reading and listening texts and focuses on how to understand relevant parts of a text, how to read quickly and effectively, how to relate different ideas from multiple texts and how to use texts as sources for an output task. In speaking and writing, the course focuses on using sources, paraphrasing, quoting, summarizing and synthesizing. The students will learn how to write coherent, concise, informative or persuasive responses to writing questions supporting their point of view.
Students will be taught how to use the written and verbal communication tools accurately and efficiently in this course. Various types of verbal and written statements will be examined through a critical point of view by doing exercises on understanding, telling, reading, and writing. Punctuation and spelling rules, which are basis of written statement, will be taught and accurate usage of these rules for efficient and strong expression will be provided. As for verbal statement, students will be taught how to use the body language, use accent and intonation elaborately, and use presentation techniques.

ENG 102 is a compulsory course for first year students. ENG 102 focuses on the cognitive skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking. Students' academic listening skills will be improved by listening to important / relevant information from lectures or discussions and reading skills by reading recent academic texts and then using this information to create an output task. Speaking focuses on giving presentations and students get prepared to express their ideas and opinions by speaking persuasively and coherently. The writing component is a consolidation of the speaking activities.
