Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Teaching in the language classes will focus on communication while the grammar lectures will focus on the formal structures of the language. All four skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking are fully integrated in the language classes and will be assessed.
Independent learning and learner autonomy are further developed through the means of portfolio tasks, pair and group work and self-study at home and in the Language Resource Centre. Particular initiative is expected from students at this level, e.g. course participants will be asked to contribute their own materials to the classes.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
