The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
This course aims at developing receptive and productive language skills. It prepares students for the following teaching unit (LNEER 1331), which focuses more and essentially on speaking skills.
The second teaching hour is dedicated to the exploitation of a theme by means of activities of receptive and productive language use. The aim of these activities is to strengthen the lexical knowledge, but mainly the language practice which integrates the grammatical strctures seen in class.
It is structured around themes, each of which includes receptive and productive activities aimed at consolidating and broadening vocabulary and grammar.
Self tuition: vocabulary exercises and texts Moodle (platform e-learning ILV).
The students who have been identified as having a good level of Dutch (B2) will be put together into a separate group. This 'higher level' group will have 1 teaching hour a week instead of 2, but will be asked to take part in various activities in order to prepare for class or to practice the language outside of the classroom. (e.g. : tandem UCL/KUL, reading files, presentations, written tasks'). The one teaching hour will focus on oral language practice.
As far as the evaluation is concerned, the criteria remain the same for all students, whichever group they are in.
For ALL students, there will be one 'remediation' hour per week : the opportunity to have another explanation of the grammar, to ask questions, to do extra exercises (grammatical or other)' even if this hour is not compulsory, the students who have difficulties will be encouraged to participate in this remediation sessions.
They will have the opportunity to better their schore on some parts of tests made during the year.
- 3 tests will be organised (2 in the first term, and 1 in the second term) on the (seen or to be seen) vocabulary and the grammar seen in class. Each of these tests will be worth 1 mark out of 20.
The written exam will be organised in two parts :
part 1 at the end of the first term (in december)
part 2 at the end of the teaching unit, in april.

part 2 : vocabulary and grammar of second term

The student will then have a spontanious discussion on one of the themes approached during the year, based on short, simple questions. This oral part of the exam will take 15 minutes and count for 4 marks out of 20, i.e. 20% of the final mark.
