Observacions

Per cursar aquesta assignatura l'alumne hauria haver consolidat prèviament el nivell B1 d'anglès. És molt important assistir a classe amb regularitat donat que les classes són participatives i que el temari s’avança diàriament.

Students should have a solid B1 level of English to register for this course. Regular class attendance is a priority as classes involve active participation and subject matter is cumulative.
