Students will work on the History of Art and Cultural Institutions which encompass all the arts
from live performance (music, drama) to exhibiting artefacts and providing documentation to
the public. The topics discussed include the history of museums, the meaning of Heritage
through the ages and some Art History. Following a series of brief lectures, students will
perform various tasks both individually and in groups as well as specific language exercises in
relation to the subject studied to help develop their writing and public speaking abilities.

B1: The coure of ROBIC


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.
