The teacher will use both the communicative method and task-based learning in class.
The communicative method means that students will learn new language or techniques, practice it in simple ways, and then have conversations. Task-based learning means that students will have a project in class to finish and through the project you will learn new language. At the end of each lesson, we will consider what was learned and how it can be used outside of class.
Each of these items is worth the following amount of your score.
