Výukové metody
Mode of teaching: seminar The methods used in classes are presentations of new and problematic issues by the teacher, who provides students with some necessary theoretical background. This is always suplemented by many examples. Then, after discussing the given topic with their teacher, students are asked to prepare and simulate authentic conversational situations in which they are supposed to use structures and/or strategies under discussion. As for homework, students are supposed to study in advance relevant chapters from their textbooks and be ready for class discussions. Apart from that, students have to do various interactive moodle modules including quizzes designed particularly for their course.
Metody hodnocení
For the final exam, students must pass a written exam test which consists of three topics, different for every student, taken from the subject matter studied during the term, followed by a short discussion if necessary. Before the exam students have to pass successfully an on-line moodle test in the middle of the term. Moreover, all students are supposed to prepare a suggestion how to use pragmatics in their own teaching profession and try to apply their suggestion in a contact class.
