Teaching methods

Tasks will be set within the framework of a communicative methodology. Meetings with the teacher are aimed at activating the language that is required to communicate at this level and at monitoring progress. Students must undertake the activities presented in the class manual and other activities independently in order to consolidate the required linguistic and socio-cultural content.

Exam Rules

Students will undergo assessment through a final written and oral exam, which accounts for 60% of their overall grade. The written test is designed to assess their proficiency in various areas, including grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and listening comprehension, with exercises presented in a multiple-choice format. Other tasks involve linguistic completion and transformation exercises based on the course's linguistic content. Additionally, students will engage in a written production activity, either based on a provided text or a specific prompt.

In this intensive course, continuous assessment plays a crucial role, constituting 40% of the final grade. Students are expected to independently reinforce their linguistic and cultural knowledge by utilizing supplementary course materials and actively participating in classroom activities. Their final grade will be a composite of their performance in independent learning and their contributions to in-class activities.

Those students who do not actively engage in the course will be required to prepare extra reading materials. Non-attending students will need to take the final written and oral exam, which includes an additional written component based on assigned readings. Their grade will be determined solely by this final examination.

Furthermore, students who have attended less than 80% of classes will be categorized as non-attending students and will also be mandated to take the final exam.
