First, horizontally there are three main fields, which are English literature and culture, English linguistics and language information, and applied English and interpreting and translation.

The third step is to taking intensive major courses, which go into the detail in English Language and Literature. The last step, you combine traditional English Language and Literature studies with applied English studies.
