Learning activities and methodology
The subject has planned a total of 3 ECTS. Students' hours spent in studying will be kept in mind for compute them. Teacher methodology Classes follow a communicative method; each communicative objective implies a part of theorical lesson (grammar and lexical) and a series of oral and written exercises. Class hours: 14 Student hours: 49 A specific area will be set up in AULA GLOBAL in which each teacher, at the beginning of every four-month period, the timetable and the place where tutorials will be made and the customized assistance of students. Two additional colective tutorials are added as a complement of individual tutorials. These are guidance sessions, review or doubt explanations, which assistance is only voluntary for students. Therefore, they won't be used to increase the content of programmes and they are not evaluative. As far as a four-month period is concerned, it is highly recommended that the student doesn't give up on studying the language during the second four-month period for settling its knowledge. The Tourism Centre will work in collaboration with the Language Centre. Besides, the student will dispose of material settled to the study of all 4 skills in libraries: manuals of grammar, vocabulary and phonetics, exercises notebooks about listening and reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, self-learning methods, balanced lectures in French, French films in OV and docummentaries related to tourism.
