English Composition (EC) is a compulsory course designed to teach you how to write a critical essay in English. Besides examining the theoretical aspect of academic writing, it is designed as a workshop where you will practice essay-writing using the techniques of literary analysis that you have learnt in ILA.


In the fall semester the focus is on the structure (argument, paragraphs, introduction, conclusion) and style (language and conventions) of critical essays analysing literary texts. In the spring semester the focus is on writing essays in English linguistics.
