Welcome METU DBE Page

The Department of Basic English aims to provide the students whose level of English is below proficiency level with basic language skills so that they can pursue their undergraduate studies at our university without major difficulty.

To achieve this aim, the department runs a two-semester intensive program placing emphasis on reading, writing, listening and speaking.
