Assessments and Accreditation

The assignments are part of the Certificate of Higher Education: Modern Languages. Your learning process and your development is monitored by your tutor, giving you the opportunity to improve in all areas and also giving your tutor a clear understanding of your progression. We understand assignments, not as a threatening element, but as an important part of the quality of your learning. We believe that you can learn more and appreciate better what you do. This means that the work produced by you is continually assessed, and assignments won’t be separated from your learning experience. The assignments have been specially design to cater for Adult Learning, with a very friendly approach as they are integrated in the class, and we will adapt to your timetable accordingly. They can be done in class or at home. You will notice that all of the language modules are given a number of credits. The number of credits is 10 for all the Beginners modules and 20 for all other language modules. These credits will be awarded to you at the end of each module, provided that you have completed the appropriate assessment activities. These assessment activities will be focussing on the following skills: Writing, Reading, Listening and Speaking. These credits will be banked in order to obtain a University recognized qualification. This qualification is the Certificate of Higher Education: Modern Languages.
