Students can take any of the following foreign language combinations: English, French, German or Spanish. The only condition is that each of the learners is a native speaker of that language.
This module aims at developing students' spoken and written proficiency as well as their intercultural awareness and to support them in the acquisition of independent learning skills. Students will work collaboratively with a native speaker partner for at least two hours per week, using bilingual independent learning material developed by the Centre for Modern Languages for this purpose. They will be expected to exercise responsibility for the organisation of their own learning, including negotiating objectives, time management, monitoring of progress, maintaining contact with their partner and seeking and providing correction. They will be required to sign a learning contract to this effect and to keep a learner diary.
