This is the second year Gaelic language course for people who started learning in their first year. It builds on the foundations already set in the first year and continues to develop vocabulary, grammatical structures and idioms in both writing and speech.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
The course will concentrate on the grammatical structure of the language building on, consolidating and developing previous knowledge. One class session per week will concentrate on the acquisition of new structures and concepts. A second session will consolidate these through written and oral exercises. The third session will be an oral class which aims to develop confidence in speaking the language and introduces the students to a variety of Gaelic registers. Students will be expected to prepare work for submission on a regular basis.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
1st Attempt: Continuous Assessment (20%); Oral Assessment (20%); Two-hour written examination (60%).
4 formative assessments on different aspects of written Gaelic. These four pieces of work will form the basis of the 20% continuous assessment.
The above assessments are given CAS marks and written feedback. General verbal feedback is given in class. Additional written and/or verbal feedback is given on an individual basis as required.
