Description This module will be organised around a number of separate components: the weekly expression orale class with an ALT will be structured around a variety of oral and aural tasks such as: oral presentation, debate and role-play. Part of this hour will be devoted to preparing students to gain full benefit from their period of residency abroad (where applicable). The weekly language class will focus primarily upon written skills: it will be divided into several teaching blocks where different writing styles and types of exercise will be introduced then reinforced and practiced. A series of lectures/workshops will be the focus for students working on vocabulary and grammar skills. There will be some laboratory sessions designed to enhance awareness and accuracy of sounds and intonation patterns.

  • Demonstrate competence in new areas of grammar and show improved competence in previously acquired grammatical areas. On completing this module, students should have achieved level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
