Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Classes are in tutorial form and are highly interactive. Emphasis is placed on practising speaking, listening, reading and writing skills using the resources of the language laboratories and languages server. Extensive use of Moodle in conjunction with these facilities encourages practice, revision and independent learning.

embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills:

The key employability skills are: time management and self awareness; communication skills; IT skills and identification of suitable online resources.

Assessment (formative and summative):

Feedback is given weekly during the interactive classes. The assessment portfolio contains a range of tasks (marked homework and class tests), which develop and test the students' language skills (grammar, reading and listening comprehension, written and oral production).

Research/ teaching linkages;

The modes of delivery and assessment are informed by current research in applied linguistics and second language acquisition.


Supporting equality and diversity:

Material are provided on Moodle and in hard copy in some cases. The languages server facilitates access to language learning materials. The assessments are designed to be accessible to students from a range of different backgrounds and first languages. Student Support Services can provide extra help as required.
