Assessment methods and Criteria
Exercises will be given during the course for the students attending lessons. Near the end of the course or after, each student (alone or in groups of maximum three) will choose with the teacher the topic for a final project. This will be the development of content and form of an original communication project. The student will present and discuss all the exercises and the final project. After this discussion an oral examination will decide the final pass or fail.
