LLEAP assessment for non attenders

Pubblicato il 11/04/2017

Students who did not attend the course in the first semester cannot be part of the self assessment programme and will have to do the exam.

This consists of an oral presentation (10 -15 minutes)  on a topic pertaining to 'Aspects of English Today'. You should agree this topic with me (by email, or during my office hours) at least a week before the exam. In addition, you should send me a written abstract of your presentation (approx  350 words) at least three days before the exam. This abstract contibutes to the overall assessment. After your presentation you should be prepared to answer questions on the contents (another 10-15 minutes). You may use notes during the presentation, but powerpoint is not required. To have an idea of topics which were presented during the course, you can view  the material on the CMM / laboratorio linguistico page To access this material the password is LLEAP2016.

If you did not attend the lettorato given by Dott.ssa McQuillan, you will also have to do this part of the assessment; please contact Dott.ssa McQuillan for details.
