Programa Práctico
Practical classes will be given to develop the four basic communicative skills: speaking, listening, reading & writing,
with special emphasis on the oral abilities. As with "theoretical" classes, attendance at class is a basic necessity.
Evaluación
The theoretical exams will be of the grammatical-test type, which will enable the students to show their knowledge of
the theory explained and their ability to put that theory into practice. For that reason, it is important to take note of the
numerous examples given in class. It is hoped to set one exam -only for the theoretical part of the subject- at the end
of the first cuatrimester, or thereabouts,which will examine the subject matter given up to that date, and the final exam
in June, in which students who have not passed the first part of the exam have the opportunity to resit this.The second
part of the June exam is obligatory for all students.
The final marks of the exam will include those of "theory" and those of "practice", both of which are equally important.
Either of these two parts may be passed independently and the mark "held over" until the September resit exam.
Attendance at class will be considered a very important factor.

THEORY:
Methodology:
The teaching approach will not only be based on prescriptive knowledge of the English verb. Students will be also
required to know how to use the verb in context.
Besides, a descriptive approach will be also introduced in the classroom. Therefore, students will be asked to describe
verbs in specific contexts. This will involve the need of knowing some notions about descriptive discourse analysis.
Classes and class work will be held in English.
Assessment
Assessment percentage will be based on the following criteria:
10% Class attendance.
20% Participation and classwork. Students will be asked to hand in practices throughout the year. The deadline of
each practice is compulsory and will not be changed under any circumstance.
70% Final exam.
Important Note:
In order to pass the subject it is necessary to pass the exam.

for all through the year in order to complement the final grade. Class presentations will be welcome as well, in the
practical classes.
