Anglistics Study Programme Advice Units 9 -11/ 12 (integrated skills approach) Contact each teacher before the test, either write an email or come to the faculty for consultation. Ask for a task from your teachers: a translation sample, grammar/ vocabulary sample, a writing task. Teachers will give you the task, and upon completing it, you will get the feedback – what to improve, what to work on, what has been achieved. This feedback can help you prepare better for the midterm exam, and be more efficient in your preparation. Visit the course page regularly.
