A level four Gaelic language course for students taking honours Gaelic. The course runs over both semesters and is topic based, enabling students to develop their ability to deal with a large range of subjects in Gaelic. The course also develops students' generic writing and oral skills.
|Session||Both Sessions||Credit Points||30 credits (15 ECTS credits)|
2 one-hour classes per week and one hour of directed study in the language lab. 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. The Junior and Senior Honours language courses form a continuum for which the final assessment is not made until the end of the Senior Honours year.
This course is designed for honours students. Not available for students with Native Speaker Higher; they are required to take Advanced Writing for Gaelic Native Speakers.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
Students are assessed formatively throughout both Level 3 and Level 4 Gaelic. This assessment is based on a folio of written work and a profile of oral class performance.
Students are given feedback weekly in the form of written corrections to submitted work and advice delivered verbally in class, both to individuals and to the whole class.
