Course held in English
The basic English language course is oriented to British Council Levels A1 through approximately B1 of knowledge. The goal of the course is to enable students to read, listen with understanding, speak and write at the B2 level or higher. While basic texts, audio and video material will be utilized, the primary learning tools will be the study and review of grammar and vocabulary along with conversation in class and the completion of exercises outside of class. Assignments may include short oral presentations, preparation of simple dramatic presentations and very brief essays.
Ideally, each student will learn together with the others in the class, and then in as much as possible, studying and conversing together outside of class as well. The course will draw upon students’ linguistic knowledge and life experiences as well as their academic interests especially in the context of other coursework at Sophia.
The advanced English language course is oriented to students with British Council Levels B1 through approximately C1 of knowledge. The goal of the course is to enable students to read, listen with understanding, speak and write at the C2 level. While literature and audio and video material will be utilized, the primary learning tools will be the students’ own preparation of compositions and oral presentations possibly pertaining to other academic work or interests, to be reviewed and critiqued together in class.

It is not a university in the classical sense of adjacent departments, but rather as a laboratory for interdisciplinary and intercultural experimentation.
