Homework:
You are going to get exercises every second week.

Some exercises are obligatory, some are voluntarily. Most of the grammar revision and exercises will be done through those two-week-exercises, so take them seriously. (But of course we will revise grammar in class, if need arises).

By appointment. Just contact me via the contact button.

GFS:
Possible of course. There won't be a list of topics, so if you are interested in doing a GFS in English, come to me as early as possible with a suggestion for a topic. However, a maximum of five GFS is possible. First come, first serve.
