Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Interactive frontal teaching

Innovative teaching methods

Many lessons involve the use of Powerpoint presentations by other foreign teachers, downloaded on the spot from the internet. Contents presented in English are thus analysed, trying to actively involve students, often following different logics, with an extensive use of acronyms. The student thus learns to extrapolate relevant information and interpret acronyms from texts in English, i.e. the language in which the most recent updates are presented in the literature.
