The program will include excursions and academic activities either in classrooms or in selected locations, as: Markets and Supermarkets, Restaurants and Cafeterias, Exhibitions and Museums, Historical Buildings, Locations of Cultural Interest.
Each month, students will be required to deliver oral presentations or group role plays and to turn in compositions. Compositions and presentations will be graded and will be considered an important part of the students final grade.
