4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

In the theoretical sessions students are expected to participate. Some of the students might even optionally present some of their translations in class. In the practical sessions, the students' protagonism is even larger, since their particpation is essential for the normal development of the sessions. They must  participate for the correction of the practical activities and in the discussions to which the different activities could give rise. For students to be able to complete the course successfully, an upper-intermediate or advanced level both in English and Spanish is required.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

Attendance and participation will be taken into account only if attendance reaches at least 75% of the total number of hours. Otherwise, students will have to contribute to the forum. A final assignment will have to be handed in. Students will do it in pairs. The deadline to send it will be the last day of class, although it can be sent two weeks in advance. For students to be able to pass the course, the result of the final exam mut be at least 4.
