Students watch a serie / listen to a academic podcast about politics/culture and debate, in a role as ‘expert’ with their fellow students about the chosen topic.
This task consists of a series of tasks in which students are introduced to different films. All films are approached from different angles. Students are expected to study these different angles in order to read and appreciate reviews about the films, after which they are invited to watch the films themselves. In the end they need to discuss if the film will be nominated for a festival based on a set of criteria. Each student needs to write a report, which will be evaluated and assessed by the teacher.
The aim of the task is to give a short presentation on a national newspaper, which includes a description of the historical background and the political orientation, and the analysis of recent news.
The aim of the task is to write a collaborative proposal for a more sustainable choice of food.
In this exercise students are asked to actively apply useful phrases (up’s) to a spontaneous nonsense presentation in preparation for the conference at the end of the language course trajectory where they present their research papers. The importance and the usefulness of the up’s when structuring a cohesive presentation is stressed while they are also having fun using theatre improvisation techniques adjusted to language learning, not to mention the great practice for their general presentation skills.
Selected episodes of the series were discussed during the course in the group collectively. In the last week students choose one of the episodes not discussed in the group.
Students explore what EU is doing to give equal chances to women at work and hold a debate about the different solutions they found.
