Course aimsAll the Department's language courses are designed to help you communicate in a friendly atmosphere with an emphasis on pair and group interaction. The focus is on speaking, listening and the exploration of culture in society, backed up by an understanding of grammar. Students will be encouraged to develop their reading and writing skills in their own time and regular assignments will be set.
Assessment methodsMost tutors will set weekly assignments to consolidate learning and allow students to study at their own pace. Some of these assignments, which may include testing listening and speaking skills, will count towards formally assessing the students’ progress.
At Stages 5 & 6, students can expect to be assessed on either one 1,000 word essay or two shorter ones written in their target language.
At lower stages, students are required instead to submit for assessment a range of exercises and/or shorter pieces of work.
Teaching methodsLanguage classes are kept small (typically 10-15 students) in order to ensure plenty of opportunities for interaction in the target language, leading to the development of listening and speaking skills, as well as an understanding of grammar.
Teaching outcomesThe following are brief indicators of what students should be able to do in each of the skills: Speaking (S), Listening (L), Reading (R), and Writing (W), by the end of the individual stages:
S - participate in simple everyday conversation
L - understand simple messages and conversations
R - obtain specific information from basic written texts
W - produce short texts
