Why study English?
English is for students who want more than textbook learning. It develops speech and writing, and rewards curiosity and healthy skepticism.
English courses improve critical thinking and teach thoughtful and effective reading and writing. These skills are an excellent foundation for civic and business life. You will discover unfamiliar worlds and exciting new ways of thinking. Challenge yourself through discussion, debate, and stimulating readings and assignments.
