Introduction

Under the guidance of an experienced teacher and speaker of English, students will strive to individually develop their writing and public speaking abilities.

Acquis d'apprentissage

Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

• Develop & make presentations
• Write structured compositions
• Conduct genuine & serious research

Contenu

Teachers will alternately introduce techniques and supervise the development of the student’s writing and presenting skills in parallel with a study of different topics of the teacher's predilection drawn from fields such as culture, management, communication, and media.

Attentes du cours

Students should be ready for a high degree of interaction: in pairs, groups and in open class environments. Discussion will be the norm and everyone is expected to contribute in every class. Students will be called on during every class to contribute and should be ready to activate their microphone when called on.

Students should arrive to class ready to participate with the necessary materials. In addition to the regular classroom materials`, this includes a computer equipped with a webcam, microphone, and active high-speed internet connection for the duration of each session.

Classroom expectations:
The participation grade will be based on the following criteria:
• Punctuality: on-time and ready to work (non-disruptive in time-keeping)
• Motivation: Only speaking English in Class, no use of translation tools
• Professional: Appropriate setting, actions and interaction for professional context.
• Engagement: Participating appropriately in whole-class activities
• Focus / Responsiveness: Remaining focused during teacher input and on class tasks. Responds immediately and appropriately when asked.
• Committed to Homework: Homework delivered on time and to the best of your ability.
• Positive: Contributing to positive class atmosphere


General rules for ‘live’ sessions:
Think ‘COPP’: Camera On (Mic. off unless contributing), Professional, Positive.

Attendance will be taken at the beginning, end, and at random intervals during the class. If a student arrives late, or experiences technical problems, it is the student’s responsibility to signal this to the teacher immediately, and to the Helpdesk if necessary. Absences and lateness, as with any lack of participation, will affect the final grade. Severe lateness will be treated as absence.

Evaluation

All Grading will be on a scale of 0 to 20, unless otherwise stated.

1/3 CF: A written response to given input, produced in an academic style
1/3 CC: Selected Classroom assignments, as detailed by the teacher.
1/3 PP: Presence & Participation (each representing 50% of the PP grade)

Presence: Students will receive credit for attending class regularly, up to a maximum of 1/6 of their total grade. Unjustified absences will thus have a direct impact on student’s overall grade.
Participation: Students will be assessed on their participation in class, according to the criteria in ‘classroom expectations’

Validating the tandem programme will add 2 bonus points to a student’s CC grade (CC) of the corresponding language course.
It is the responsibility of the student to make up for any missed work in order to avoid these absences further impacting final grades.

CEFR Grade (A1-C2)
Students will be continuously assessed as to their language level relative to the CEFR criteria.
There is NO DIRECT RELATION between a student’s CC/CF/PP and their CEFR level.

Approches pédagogiques

To achieve this goal, students will work through a rigorous drafting & editing process both of their written work & oral presentations. Specific coaching will be provided to help students meet the goals they set themselves during the semester.
