Structure & Assessment
The course is run online and taught by qualified modern language tutors who have their DELTA or MA and an online teaching qualification. Participants are assessed on a portfolio comprising of homework tasks and a final assignment, all of which is moderated by the IH Assessment Unit. They are also expected to follow and contribute to the CAM course programme. The grading of the course is Pass or Fail.
The course is delivered in English, but the candidates participate in the forums and complete the portfolio tasks and final assignment in the target language (French, German, Russian or Spanish). They are monitored and marked by modern language tutors.
Please note that the level of English of modern language candidates will not be assessed during the course, however they should have a good working knowledge of written English (minimum B2/higher intermediate) to be able to follow the course.
