Tools for study and work in self-study: thematic vocabulary lists and texts from the book 'Vers une communication professionnelle, néerlandais B2 - , Hilde Bosmans, Katrien De Rycke et al, De Boeck, 1st edition, September 2020), vocabulary exercises on Moodle (ILV e-learning platform), texts related to the company in the class written by the students on the Prezi presentation tool and the preparation of two group presentations.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.If the health situation permits (green code), this teaching unit is given face-to-face and partially in e-learning.
For each theme: use, application and consolidation of lexical and grammatical knowledge by interactive presentations given by students on the themes of the texts in the book 'Vers un communication professionnelle'.
Oral (role-playing, debates, conversations) and written (writing letters and texts) production activities.
Receptive activities: written and oral texts (multimedia) accompanied by comprehension and vocabulary exercises.
Grammatical explanations and exercises (oral and written) focusing more specifically on grammar points that pose problems for French speakers.
Tools for study and work in self-study: thematic vocabulary lists and texts from the book 'Vers une communication professionnelle, Néerlandais B2 - , Hilde Bosmans, Katrien De Rycke et al, De Boeck, 1st edition, September 2020), vocabulary exercises on Moodle (ILV e-learning platform), texts relating to the company in the class written by the students on the Prezi presentation tool and the preparation of two group presentations.
If the health situation does not allow it (code yellow or orange), the teachers will set up a rotation system in which as many students as possible will have the opportunity to attend the classroom. The other students follow the course partially on Teams at a distance and in e-learning on Moodle. In the event of a red (or orange) code, this teaching unit will take place in the form of distance learning.
Depending on the situation (e.g. health or for pedagogical reasons), the course may switch to distance learning at any time.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.Continiuous evaluation throughout the year
If the health situation allows it, i.e.: face-to-face lessons
Written examination in several parts:
week 6: test 1 (during the course): vocabulary topic 1, texts on Moodle, verwarrende woorden: on 2 points
week 9: test 2 (during the course): test material 1 + vocabulary topic 2, texts on Moodle, verwarrende woorden, grammar: 5 points
week 14: test 3 (on site): test subject 1&2 + vocabulary theme 3, texts on Moodle, verwarrende woorden, grammar + writing a text: out of 13 items
The three tests together account for 20% of the final score and must be represented in Q2 if the score obtained is less than 10/20.
week 5: test 1 (during the course): vocabulary topic 4, texts on Moodle, verwarrende woorden: on 2 points
week 8: test 2 (during the course): test subject 1, + vocabulary topic 5, texts on Moodle, verwarrende woorden, grammar: 5 points
week 13: test 3 (on site): test subject 1+2, + vocabulary theme 6, texts on Moodle, verwarrende woorden, writing a letter or an e-mail and grammar: 13 points + listening comprehension: 5 points
The oral examination takes place in June and consists of a conversation and a role-play based on two texts seen during the course on themes covered during the year.
The points are divided between the written and oral exams:
20% for the permanent evaluation part: two group presentations, attendance and active participation in the courses
All tests are mandatory. If you are absent (without official justification) for any part of the assessment (except tests 1 and 2), this will imply an "absence" mark for the whole assessment. A student who has not taken part of the assessment will not be admitted to the other parts of the assessment. If you are absent without official justification for tests 1 and/or 2, you will receive a 0/20 for these test(s).
If the student does not pass the January test or does not provide a medical certificate, he/she must retake this part in Q2 (i.e. he/she will retake the whole test, i.e. January and June). If the student does not retake this part, he/she will get 0/20 for this part.
Attendance at the course (face-to-face or distance learning) is compulsory. If the teacher deems it useful, he/she may propose to the jury to object to the registration for the course examination of a student who has not regularly attended the learning activities (RGEE - art. 72).
In the September session, the student is required to re-submit all the material for the written examination (Q1 and Q2) + the oral examination. The mark for the permanent assessment, obtained during the year, is given when it is in the student's favour. In the September examination, the student therefore only retakes the written part and the oral examination, not the presentations.
It is also possible to take part in a TANDEM project with the KU Leuven on a voluntary basis and if the health situation allows it (green code). Those who participate are exempted from the group presentation of Q2. If the academic year starts with a code yellow, orange or red, the Tandem project cannot continue.
If the health situation (or other crisis situation) does not allow a permanent evaluation (e.g. due to a switch to distance learning), then:
The written assessment (tests 1, 2 and 3 in Q1 and Q2) will be replaced by a distance written exam in week 14 (Q1) and 13 (Q2) or during the January (Q1) and June (Q2) session (vocabulary, listening comprehension, written expression and grammar = 45% of the final mark) with a platform for remote monitoring (proctoring). Teachers will place mock tests on the Moodle platform. Participation in these mock tests can earn the student one point for the written part.
Oral presentations on Teams during the year count for 20% of the final mark, and the oral exam on Teams (based on press articles, role-playing related to the themes covered in the course and questions related to the course content) count for 35% of the final mark. Vocabulary questions may also be asked during this oral exam.
If the proctoring platform for the written examination cannot be used for any reason, the written examination will be cancelled and replaced only by the presentations and the oral assessment based on the role-play and press articles related to the course topics, questions on the course content and vocabulary questions. This mark will then constitute 100% of the final mark.
If the teacher has any doubts about the performance of the student, the teacher will ask the student for a mark of 100%.

In code orange we can organise a written exam in January on the LLN campus and this written exam will take place on the dates indicated in the table below:
LNEER1332-ECGE=E Monday 18/01/2021 14h00-15h30
LNEER1332-INGE-PPE=E Friday 22/01/2021 14h00 -15h30
As previously announced, the content of the examination will cover dossiers 1, 2 and 3 (book), the 'verwarrende woorden' (Moodle), a productive grammar exercise like those we have had throughout this semester, as well as written expression based on one of the texts in the dossiers (book) and on the presentations in q1 (the prezi reports about the company chosen by your class).
Plan B = code red
In code red, we will not be able to organise a written exam on the university's website.
This written exam will therefore be replaced by a 10-minute individual conversation with your teacher on TEAMS. The day and time of your exam will be chosen according to your and the teacher's availability. Your registration for this individual exam will be done via Moodle.
The content of this oral interview will focus on 1 of the texts in the book and on the presentation that accompanies this text (the prezi report of the company chosen by the class) q1 ( = the content of the written expression that we would have asked you for in plan A. It will therefore be done orally in scenario B.
Vocabulary and grammar will be tested in q2
In week 14 we will again put a test on Moodle on the same principle as tests 1 and 2: participation in this test will be worth 1 point for the evaluation of Q1.
As for the distribution of points for the January session, it will be as follows:
Test 1, 2 in 3 on Moodle /3
Plan A: Written exam January /17
Plan B: Oral exam on Teams: /7 Presentation Q1: /10
