- All the language courses consist of practical language lessons, which means that regular participation is very important and it's usually a requirement for passing the course. Everyone who wish to participate in a language course must be registered.
- The length of the course is calculated in academic hours: 1 academic hour equals to 45 minutes, one language lesson lasts for 1,5 hours (i.e. 2 academic hours). One course is usually 60-64 academic hours (i.e. 30-32 meetings).
- Upon registering for a course, you assume the obligation of undergoing an evaluation of learning outcomes. A grade may be obtained throughout the course or by way of a final evaluation (examination, pass-fail examination or homework).
- The language learner will get all the necessary information from the lecturer in the first lesson.
- After completing the course, the learner will also receive a certificate.
- The language levels are marked according to CEFR standards: A (beginner), B (intermediate), C (advanced).
