Our unit aims to bring its students to a B2 level with a training program prepared in line with the principles of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
In this context, it aims to help students acquire an equal level of proficiency in four basic language skills.
Our program relies heavily on communicative language teaching approach; hence, the medium of instruction is English at all times.
Efforts are made to ensure that the language of communication both for in-class and extracurricular activities is English.
Giving the students the opportunity to develop their research skills, to prepare original and creative projects and presentations by taking responsibility, and to learn by using visual and audio-technological resources is a fundamental objective for the program.
The English Preparatory Program aims to educate its students in the best possible way and therefore always strives to keep the soul of hard-work and effort alive.
The academic staff consider it a duty to always stay in touch with their students.
At the end of the one-year preparation period, students who have reached the B2 level (independent user), in terms of reading and listening comprehension, writing and speaking skills according to the criteria of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages successfully complete the preparatory class.
