8. Elementary English course guidelines:
SIS (Student Independent Study) consists of two assigned tasks to be done by students on the
independent basis. Before the start of the academic period every student is provided with a full
package of guidelines on the fulfillment of students’ independent study on paper containing:
- themes, the purpose and the content of tasks;
- recommended literature;
- reporting forms and schedule control;
- criteria for evaluation.
Fulfillment of students’ independent study is conducted in accordance with the academic calendar.
TSIS (Homework) consolidates the concepts and materials taken during in-class activities and
skill areas; TSIS will develop the students’ ability to work in pairs and in small groups in exploring
and examining related issues. Types of Homework:
- Completion – anything not completed in class
- Practice – review and reinforcement of concepts presented in class
- Preparation – gathering and organization of materials for use in the classroom
- Extension – creative activities that integrate and/or expand upon classroom learning
materials in English, to prepare exercises and activities for the class, to write assignments, and
generally acquire a repertoire of effective language learning strategies.
In-class assessment (file tests / quick tests) is intended to check students’ understanding of the
material being taught.
Mid-term progress test – a test used to identify the students’ progress, their strengths and
weaknesses, intended to ascertain what further teaching is necessary.
It includes grammar,
End of term includes speaking - students discuss in pairs the topics studied during the course
–The final written test will include grammar, vocabulary, reading and

and plagiarism are violations of academic honesty. Any student found violating the academic
policy would receive an automatic “ZERO” for the assignment. All formal papers must be
submitted at the beginning of class on the day they are due. PAPERS THAT DO NOT MEET THE
DEADLINES ARE NOT ACCEPTED!!!
11. Attendance policy:
Attendance is mandatory. Students will be penalized for missing more than 10% of classes.
