A level 3 Gaelic language class for students not taking Honours in Gaelic. The course is topic based and will enable students to deal with a large range of subjects in Gaelic. The course also develops students' generic writing and oral skills. The course runs over both semesters.
|Session||Both Sessions||Credit Points||30 credits (15 ECTS credits)|
2 two-hour classes per week and independent study. One class will focus on oral communicative skills, and the other will develop competencies in the written language in a variety of different registers. Students will be required to complete regular assignments, to study independently and to study tapes and videos in the language centre.
This course is not available for students with Native Speaker Higher; they are required to take Advanced Writing for Gaelic Native Speakers. This course is for students who are not completing an Honours degree in Gaelic Studies.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
1st Attempt: Continuous assessment (100%): six written language exercises (60%) and oral exam (40%).
Resit: 1 three-hour written examination (60%) and one oral examination (40%).
Formative assessment is based on a folio of written work and a profile of oral class work.
Students are given feedback in written form on a weekly basis, on work submitted in class. Feedback is also offered verbally to individuals and to the whole class in all classes.
