Each student is required to do a level test which consists of an oral interview and a written test in order to determine their entry level. Moreover, the coordinator of the Spanish department will carry out a questionnaire in class at the beginning of the course in order to determine students’ satisfaction. The information obtained will be compared with the results of a final questionnaire done at the end of the course.
Student’s performance is assessed according to participation in class and progress checks which are set at the end of each 50 hour block. At the end of each course, students are given a report which details their progress in the five areas (Speaking, Writing, Reading, Listening, Grammar and Vocabulary) and a certificate to show that they have passed the course.
