Linguistics and literary studies are at the center of this subject, as opposed to the acquisition and application of the foreign language. Good English skills are much more required and advanced in language exercises.

Linguistics focuses on the structure and function of language, above all the English language, with linguistic theories, langauge development and aquisition, and computer linguistics.

In literary studies, primary texts from different genres and periods in American and English literature are analyzed using theories and models and considered within their contexts. Other areas in the subject include cultural studies, and English pedagogy, which deal with the basics of teaching English as a foreign language and theories in creating lessons.

Just as in school, students should have fun reading and having critical discussions during their studies. Furthemore they must also possess preparedness for examining difficult theoretical texts and composing longer texts in the form of homework and papers.
