Teaching methods
The tuition is realised in the form of practical courses. The following teaching methods are used: class discussion, roleplay, work in groups, reading, listening, writing HW (including Projects), word study.
Assessment methods
The tuition is realised in the form of practical courses. The students' presence in these courses is strictly required; a maximum of two unexcused absences is tolerated. Students are allowed to substitute a maximum of TWO classes with another group. Substitutions are not possible in the weeks when Progress Test take place. Students must inform the teacher of the group in which they intend to substitute their missed class in writing in advance. If they fail to do so, they will not be allowed to attend the class. If a student has more than two unexcused absences, they will not be allowed to take the Final test. The tuition is finished by by an end-of-term examination consisting of a WRITTEN and an ORAL part. Passing the examination is conditioned by proper attendance, ACTIVE PARTICIPATION in practical courses, sitting for Progress Tests and successful passing of written and oral exams. The basic limit for passing all tests is 70%. In case of passing three class tests (3%, 3%, 4%) which are obligatory for all students, the basic limit in the written exam is reduced by 10%. Without successful passing the written exam students will not be allowed to sit for the oral part! Students who score a minimum of 90% in EACH progress test are not obliged to take the written part of Final exam. Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams (credit tests) will be considered non-compliance with the conditions for course completion as well as a severe violation of the study rules. Consequently, the teacher will finish the exam by awarding grade "F" in the Information System.
