They are able to converse fluently with native speakers of the well-known and can express their views and the advantages and disadvantages of a problem. They can write a detailed text about their area of interest and capture its meaning. Teaching focuses on professional communication in a foreign language and presentation of the results of their work.

Assessment methods and criteria
Systematic student observation, Test, Seminar work

The attendance is voluntary. The student is not obliged to purchase the textbook used in the lessons. To pass the final test at least 65 % must be achieved (dates subject to agreement, 1 resit). A translation related to the language taught will be part of the test. The student shall prepare a ppt presentation regarding his/her Bachelor Thesis (approximately 15 min) with an oral commentary (not to be read). The presentation will also involve a discussion with other students and the lecturer and must be presented by the beginning of the credit week (alternative dates only upon agreement). The student shall elaborate two to three topics (depending on the number of students) in both languages in the extent of approximately 1 standardized page by the 3rd April 2017 in the appropriate English level (B1 CEFR). The topics will be assigned during the first class of the semester. Other options of passing the course are defined in Vice-Dean's Announcement No. 1/2016. In case the student decides to use the option to replace the final test with the QPT at the British Centre (or the entire subject with the PET certificate and higher), he /she shall inform the lecturer about it no later than on the day of the scheduled final test. (Please note: The Quick Placement Test is only valid for the relevant academic year and must be taken during the academic year in question).
