The grammar covered includes:
articles/basic verbs and conjugation/negatives/adjectives/prepositions

Assessment:
Formal and informal assessments through the year. Tests set in the middle of each term with an end-of-year assessment to assess overall progress. Homework given once a week, should take no more than30 mins.
