You will be awarded an official City, University of London certificate on completion of the course. You must attend over 70 per cent of the classes to be eligible for the certificate.
There is no formal assessment but there is weekly homework of comprehensive grammar exercises and reading texts, and it’s important you complete this to keep improving.
Although there isn’t an exam, your tutor will monitor and assess your progress throughout the course, via your performance during the lesson and the homework you submit.
In class you will use activities, such as role play and small group exercises to focus on all four key skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing. With a focus on speaking, you’ll have plenty of time to apply the language in real-world scenarios.
You’ll receive lesson content in advance, giving you the chance to practice your pronunciation – this leaves more time in class to apply what you’ve learnt.
