Student reviews

Great course, but needs a lot of time. I spoke Welsh in school 25 years ago so im not a complete beginner.
the materials are easy to read and follow, very well presented. A shame there isn't a Level 2 like the other languages. I feel I should have left this till the last module as by the time I get to the end of the degree I will need a refresher again.

I wa a bit nervous using the speaking software, but it doesn't take long to get the hang of it.

a bit disappointed with the inconsistency of the EMA marking. Apart from that a really good course.

Course starting: November 2010

Faculty comment: "The vast majority of the students were satisfied with the materials and quality of the module and able to keep up with the workload. However, compared to the previous year, students seemed to enjoy studing the module less, were less satisfied with the experience, and were less inclined to recommend the module or agree that it provided good value for money. For future presentations further advice on how to engage with the module maps is to be provided to hopefully, engage the students more and increase overall satisfaction with the module."
