Class contact time will be used for presentation and practice of language with an emphasis on speaking and listening skills. Students will be required to make an active commitment to group and pair work. Reading and writing skills will be taught too but further developed in self-study time. Learning and teaching will also aim to develop transferable skills and intercultural competence.
The learning outcomes will be assessed by coursework and an end-of module in-class assessment. Coursework will consist of a portfolio of tasks including a needs analysis and a self-evaluation. This is designed to encourage students to plan and organise their independent learning.
