Requirement/Grading

100% of English is used for all instructor's lectures and in-class activities. Students are expected to take an active role in all class activities to maximize their learning opportunities. A student-centered approach will be adopted to allow students to make full use of class time to achieve their English-learning goals and the course learning objectives.



 



Students should attend all classes and come to class on time and prepared. Attendance is taken seriously. No make-up assignments or exams are allowed. Late homework will NOT be accepted. Students who "need" to be absent or late for class should notify the instructor via email at least 2 days in advance.
