Description of exams and course work
In the presentation, students demonstrate an awareness of Anglo-American academic public speaking conventions and are able to put these into practice; in the homework assignments, students are graded on multiple drafts of their texts based on their ability to present content clearly and succinctly taking readers’ needs and writing conventions into consideration. In the final exam, they will demonstrate the ability to use complex grammatical structures and professional vocabulary correctly (e.g. are able to differentiate accurately between situations requiring formal or familiar registers and select the correct form). Dictionaries and other aids may not be used during the exam.
