Assessment methods
Examination: written and oral
- 60% of points in the written examination are required for the admission to the oral part.
- the oral part of the exam consists of two parts - a monologue and a dialogue.
Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams 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, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
Language of instruction
