Assesssment methods and criteria:

Classification Type: Quantitativa (0-20)

Evaluation Methodology:
Students work in class meetings mainly in the following three variants: individual work, partner work and group work. Students also have to talk individually to the rest of the class when they have to inform the class about their partner work or group work. Directed teaching (teacher --> students) only takes place when it is necessary to explain the complexity of some language features, or because the first explanation was not clear enough, or because students request further information. The assessment consists of two partial exams (80%, 40% each), of an oral exam (10%) and of graded Homework (10%).
