ScOLa Seminar Series II: How to Study Writing

Last week, we delivered our second seminar on how to study writing.  More than 80 students attended the seminar which was delivered both in Turkish and English.  Based on the requests from our instructors and students, these seminars will be repeated in the following weeks.

Study Center Update

It has been one month since we started the new academic year and ScOLa Study Center was visited 50 times by our students.  The students visited the center for 20 times to get support on their writing skills, and 17 times to get guidance on how to study English and how to prepare a study plan.  The center was also visited for grammar, reading and vocabulary related questions of our students.  Please be informed that you can always direct your students who need extra guidance and help in their language learning journey to Study Center.
