EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

There will be a final test of spelling competence, comprehension and written expression. The oral exam will focus on the discussion in language of the contents proposed in class. The written exam is barred from the oral exam. For attending students, at the end of each module corresponding to their respective credits, a partial linguistic assessment will be carried out (three in total at the end of the 36 hours of lessons). The student who accepts the corresponding evaluation will be able to access the oral exam or repeat the written test in traditional mode before the oral assessment. 

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The overall evaluation of the two tests is expressed in thirtieths. During the oral exam will be evaluated, in addition to linguistic mastery, the ability to critically read the reality linked to the specific scope of the respective French language and to compare it with the disciplines of the master's degree course, as well as the use of specific language.
