The program is divided into two main parts. The first deals with the matters related to written expression and the second with the specific aspects of spoken expression. The work method will include providing students with a theoretical basis which is essential for understanding the work expected from them, but will focus primarily on applying this knowledge to practical exercises. Therefore, the program must be carried out in the form of seminars and work sessions in relatively small groups, which allow a quick feedback and follow-up from the teacher. The student is expected to play an active role in the learning process, in order to effectively verify his or her progress and achievement.
