Opportunities for Formative Feedback

Students' progress is monitored within the language classes where they engage in conversation and presentation work in the target language, practise grammatical structures, read texts in the target language etc. Regular testing of kanji, aural skills and essay-writing skills (which form the coursework assessment element) also provide a means of monitoring progress over the two semesters.
