Additionally, the 6 Homework Writings (see the Syllabus) - designed to teach you writing skills at your course level - must be turned in and then corrected according to the Writing Correction Code (see the Moodle) in order to qualify for Continuous Assessment.

In the event that a student does not complete an assignment on the date set, it will be marked as "Not presented" and given a point value of zero.

Here is the breakdown of the weight each of the evaluated language skills has in the course:

Coursework: 50 points:

Speaking 12.5 points: 2 In-class Oral Presentations

Observacions

Per cursar aquesta assignatura l'alumne hauria haver consolidat prèviament el nivell B2.1 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 B2.1 level of English to register for this course. Regular class attendance is a priority as classes involve active participation and subject matter is cumulative.
