The distance learning methodology at UNED offers, among other things, flexibility for students to organise their time, which means that they can work with the materials at their own pace, although there will be a recommendation of estimated number of hours for each unit. The PEC (Prueba de Evaluación a Distancia), however, has a submission deadline that students who wish to do it must meet.
Students will find all the learning activities, materials and exercises both in the compulsory handbook as well as on the online course, and they can seek the assistance of the "Equipo Docente" through the online course.
Legal English and its different aspects (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.) will generally be introduced through the exploration and exploitation of crime-related topics, and then there will be practice with exercises and activities.
Active involvement in the online course is encouraged and recommended. Students must check messages on the online course regularly to have updated information on deadlines, notices, etc.
