Special attention is given to students’ active involvement into the academic process through presentations, discussions, debates, role plays and other similar activities which, at the same time, promote the acquisition of communication and team-work skills. Written assignments such as quizzes, answers to open questions, micro- and end-off programme projects serve inter alia to strengthen subject comprehension and academic writing skills.
