Learning Methods

Lectures and seminars as well as oral practice. Attendance at the seminars is obligatory. Students are expected to put effort into their studying and participate actively in the instruction.

Assessment Methods

The examination is divided into two parts:

1) A 4-hour written examination which counts for 50% of the final grade.

2) An oral examination (max: 15 minutes) which counts for 50% of the final grade.

The first part of the oral examination involves a conversation in Spanish on a topic which has been covered on the course; and the second part a discussion about texts in Spanish.

Students must receive passing grades in both of the examinations in order to receive a passing grade for the course.

A letter grade will be given, on a scale from A to F, where E is the lowest passing grade.

Minor adjustments may occur during the academic year, subject to the decision of the Dean
