Cíle předmětu
The English course in speaking and listening is aimed at students who wish to improve their pronunciation in English, learn to listen to and comprehend spoken English better and who want to improve their skills in online collaboration and the use of contemporary online discussion tools.
The course is also suitable for all students from all degree programmes. It is also suitable for exchange students as the teaching language of the course is English.
This is a fully online course with a MUNI-based teacher to help with getting to know the online classroom. The course consists of both independent work as well as a small final project which will be done in groups. Even though the course has a schedule with set deadlines, the students need to be able to also work independently.

Výukové metody
The course consists of theory material which the students are required to study independently, individual assignments which are submitted to the teacher as well as a small group project. In the group project the students create short videos in small groups.
The course takes place in an online learning environment Moodle, and half of the students in the course will be from Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Finland and the other half from Masaryk University. There will be online meetings with the other students and teachers through various online communication tools (Zoom, Hangouts or Skype for example). The students will also be working on short video projects together in small groups. Other learning activities include producing individual audio and video recordings.
The course is divided into 3 sections, which take approximately 3 weeks each to complete with 1 week at the end for feedback. The students need to plan their schedules individually and with their group members.
The course coordinator in Masaryk University is able to help with course queries, problems with technology and overall course running. Topic and assignment queries can be directed to the teacher of that section.
Metody hodnocení
The students will be assessed both individually and in groups. Individual assignments consist of learning diaries and podcasts and the group assessment on the final product of the project the students will be done in groups. The assessment methods will include assessment by the teacher, self-assessment as well as peer assessment.
