At the end of the class, the student will be able to :

  • speak and communicate in English-speaking seminars;
  • do a short presentation in English;
  • write a short text in academic English (data description);
  • use a number of upper-intermediate points in academic grammar both orally and in writing;

Short test at the end of the course; short oral presentation and short written data description. Students will also build a ePortfolio with the traces of their autonomous and small group work.

The final mark will be an average of the marks received for the test, the presentation, the data description and the portfolio.
