9 10.- PREREQUISITES It is assumed that students will have a good basic knowledge of general English (A2) as it is a intermediate course (B1) METHODOLOGY The methodology applied will mainly be communicative and participative seeking to promote the students operative and expressive effectiveness throughout the different specific professional tasks presented during the course. If necessary, and depending on the students pragmatic level of business English, other complementary instructional activities might be inter-changed to repair existing grammatical or linguistic deficiencies in order to help the group improve their formal competence together with their overall communicative performance. On these lines, each unit is divided into three parts or sessions. First, in a lecture, the unit topic, contents and main concepts will be introduced (following the structure included in section 7 of this guide). Secondly, in a more participatory session, the unit contents will be applied through a series of activities designed to make students develop the communicative skills in English implied or related to the topic of the unit. Finally, in a group-working session students will practice, both individually and in teams, diverse communicative tasks characteristic of current international business environments (e.g. writing professional documents, searching for data, dealing with case studies and participating in interactive contexts such as debates, negotiations and meetings). In addition to this, classroom work students will have to dedicate several hours of independent work to each unit (e.g. elaborating assignments, reports, homework activities and exams). The planning of this subject includes several tutorial sessions arranged with the lecturer to revise and complement the contents, together with the achievement of a set of additional tasks and the practice of some of the most complex skills adapted to the specific needs of the student or of his/her work group. 8

10 12.- ASSESSMENT Students achievement of learning outcomes for English for Business I will be assessed as follows: Continuous assessment of coursework progress (theory and practice) will make up 30% of the student s grade. This assessment will be based on the student s regular attendance, performance of different assignments, practicing laboratory skills, etc. The summative assessment will probe the student s theoretical and practical learning of the coursework input of the syllabus. This summative assessment will make up 70% of the student s grade. The continuous assessment grade will be added to the summative assessment only if the student gets at least 5 points (out of 10 points) in this summative assessment. Students not participating in the continuous assessment can only achieve a maximum final grade of 7 in the final test. This exam is obligatory and passing it is a compulsory requirement in order to obtain the final qualification. The student's final mark will be obtained by adding the continuous assessment mark and the final examination mark (providing that the final examination has been passed). If the final examination has been failed, the final mark will never surpass 4.5 (out of 10). Cheating on an exam or plagiarizing the written work of others is considered a very serious offence and will not be tolerated in this course. 9
