The following briefly details the two major components of this course: Tutorials and online assignments.
TUT-sessions. In class students practice communicative activities, are exposed to native speaking, build their speaking skills and improve their confidence in using the language. A brief time is also dedicated to quickly review pronunciation and grammatical concepts when needed. Classroom meetings work as workshops in which students will have the opportunity to use the language in meaningful activities and interactions.
Independent learning & communicative online activities. Students are responsible for exploring, learning and practicing key concepts (grammar and vocabulary) assigned in each lesson. There are vocabulary, grammar, writing and communicative activities assigned for each lesson. These activities are both graded and credit/no credit.
* Students should also expect to spend approximately seven to eight weekly hours in tutorials and working on online activities.
ON-CAMPUS: Section D101-TUT will be held on campus two hours twice per week. Office hours will be on Campus (AQ 5127) and virtually (in Zoom).

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
