ILC COMFORT ZONE
ILC Comfort Zone is located along the windows at the ILC. We highly recommend you to spend more time within the peaceful atmosphere of the Comfort Zone.
A variety of newspapers, magazines or brochures can be found on ILC shelves. You should know that using classroom resources only and restricting learning into class hours will slow down your pacing in learning a language. Documents you may find on Reading Shelves will show you the actual, authentic language use, which is definitely what you need for a better command over a foreign language.
> Reading Shelves are multilingual. On these shelves, you may access magazines and newspapers on English, French, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and Turkish. Keep in mind that materials on a language you do not speak will also increase your linguistic and cultural awareness.
COLOURFUL LEARNING SPACE
The ILC is not a classroom or a language lab. Instead, it is a peaceful and active learning space designed to meet your needs and expectations. We keep working to serve you better.
