Practical English 2010

Course Description

The course will examine various aspects of English usage. The written component will focus on the formal aspects of written discourse such as sentence style, vocabulary and text flow. The spoken part of the course will cover problematic aspects of the student’s pronunciation in addition to debate and presentation skills.

Assessment Methods

The continuous assessment will consist of two obligatory written assignments, and an oral exam which counts for 40% of the final grade. The final written examination counts for 60%. Students must receive passing grades in both the mid-term and final examinations in order to receive a final passing grade for the course. Grades 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
