The main purpose of Oasis English Café is for students to have a relaxed and welcoming place to practice their English skills. During their free time, students can come to the café to speak English with native and Korean English-speaking staff as well as with international professors and other students. Oasis also offers the chance for students to socialize in a relaxed environment and get to know people from different majors and various countries.
Oasis Café has a mini library with hundreds of English novels and textbooks, and a number of board games for students to play with. Students are free to read any of the books while in the café or borrow them with permission from the staff.
English music is often played in the café which provides students with the opportunity to be fully immersed in the English language in a relaxed and stress-free way.
The concept of this program is to give Silla University students and faculty members the opportunity to have one-on-one, weekly conversations with native English teachers. At the beginning of each semester, all Silla students and staff are eligible to register for the English Buddy program through the International Education Center. This highly popular program runs for 8 weeks every semester. At the end of the program, a party is held for all participants and teachers in the program to socialize and play games together while enjoying free snacks and drinks.
In the second semester, there are two special events open to all Korean and international students: the Halloween and Christmas parties. These fun and unique events recreate authentic experiences from Western culture during which students can make new friends who share an interest in the English language and different cultures.
