The course comprises some 60 contact hours of classroom tuition over the 13 weeks of semester. Students will be required to complete an additional 40 hours of study outside the classroom. Tetum 1B aims, firstly, to give students a more advanced spoken command of Tetum, with emphasis (as in Tetum 1A) on interactive use of language in commonly occurring situations, and secondly, to develop reading and listening skills using a variety of texts.

Other Information

All students with previous 'language experience or exposure' are required to take a language placement test to determine their language proficiency in order to ensure enrolment into the language course at the most appropriate level. 

 

The Course Convenor, in consultation with the Language Convenor will move students into an appropriate level course if students are deemed to be of a different proficiency level. Students are also encouraged to consult their course convenors immediately upon if they find that their proficiency level differs from that expected by the course.


As language courses are sequential, this may mean that students can only commence their language course in the following semester.

Indicative Assessment

Four written tests during semester (20%), vocab quizzes during semester (10%), one take-home written assignment (10%), class performance and participation (20%), two oral examinations (40%).

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity.
