METODOLOGÍAS Y ACTIVIDADES DE ENSEÑANZA Y APRENDIZAJE:

Metodologías de enseñanza-aprendizaje a desarrollar:

 

Learning/ Teaching Methodology employed: Communicative Approach will be used in class.  Students work in groups or in couples speaking English to the teacher and among themselves.  The use of this approach guarantees that the student uses grammar, vocabulary and language structures according to a B2 level.  Students are expected to participate in class in English and practice it with communicative learning activities. Classes will be developed using some texts and different pedagogical resources.  This methodology encourages students to learn in a more independent and responsible way towards their own learning process.  Students are expected to study grammar and do the exercises required before class.  During classes students are expected to talk in English and put into practice their knowledge.  Self-learning strategies will be taught in class to help students to develop a more encouraging, productive and independent way of learning. 

 

Participation: Because English class is the only place where you can practice listening and speaking, class attendance is crucial. Class activities are carried out entirely in English. You are expected to participate actively in class. Since one of the course objectives is to help students to interact in everyday situations in English, actual communication in the classroom will be emphasized. It is extremely important that you come well prepared to class. For the most part, grammar should be studied at home; a small percentage of class time is intended for grammar instruction and practice.  Group exercises will be done in class to incorporate the new grammatical concepts learned. If you have doubts or questions, these exercises may be discussed, or on a limited basis, reviewed in class. In addition, always remember to consult the teacher during office hours (or by appointment) when you are having trouble. The teacher will be happy to help you and she assign you specific exercises. 

 

Homework/ tasks: You are expected to prepare daily for class, reading and studying the corresponding assignment at the PDU. You will be responsible to check the syllabus at the PDU to know by when activities need to be completed. The teacher will check that you have completed the exercises and she will correct them.

 

Academic expectations:  San Jorge University and the Institute of Modern Languages maintain a high standard of academic integrity among its faculty members and students. In becoming part of the San Jorge University academic community, you are responsible for honesty and independent work. Any student who takes part in any act of academic fraud will be seriously taken into account and his/ her grade will be considerably reduced. Dishonesty and/ or plagiarism includes, for example: using another person’s ideas without referencing appropriately; inventing a bibliographical reference or pretending to have consulted one; inventing research results without having done the research, etc. This inappropriate behaviour will be considered especially in relation to texts copied from Internet. ALL work must be your own work, without the help of others. Writing that may primarily be someone else’s work will not be accepted. To clarify what kind of help is admitted, refer to the following list.

 

YOU MAY: 

 

YOU MAY NOT:


Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated and will automatically result in failure (no second chances given!). It only takes one act of academic dishonesty to fail the entire course.

 

Courtesy
Everyone will be encouraged to participate in class and it is essential that full courtesy is awarded to your classmates. Intentional class disturbances (for example: using instant messenger programmes, keeping your mobile phone on in class, accepting a phone call during class, text messaging or listening to personal audio) will result in a penalty of absence from the class for those involved in the distracting behaviour. As a courtesy to your teacher and to your classmates, please make sure at the beginning of each class period that your mobile phones are turned off.

Assignments
All assignments must be typed or word-processed. Double space your assignments and use Times New Roman size 12 and turned in on time. Late or handwritten work will not be accepted.  All files must include the student’s full name followed by a hyphen and the title of the task. For example:

James Smith-Audiovisual Translation Task 1
