Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Language proficiency, oral and written, is absolutely vital to the good performance of a communication specialist (whether in journalism, advertising, or public relations). Naturally, while still bringing to light the basic rules of language functioning, this discipline has an essentially practical vocation. Students will have the opportunity both to create numerous worksheets and to view power points specifically designed for this area of study.
The assessment, during teaching-learning, is based on 3 works (30% + 30% + 40% of the classification) carried out by the student throughout the semester and assembled in a school portfolio built for the purpose. Classification: 0 to 20 values; Grade to pass the course: 10 or more values; Minimum score for access to the exam period: 6 points.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
