Classes (iCal) - next class is marked with N

This course and the following course Simultaneous II will focus on the same topics and, as far as possible, a mix of methods will be used that encompasses both courses. I recommend participating in both, but this is not a requirement.

If you do not attend the first lesson (without giving a good reason in advance), you will be de-registered from the course and your place will be given to the next person on the waiting list.
If you wish to de-register from this course, please do so by 31 October at the latest. After this time, it will not be possible for you to leave the course.
Continuous assessment of course work. If you miss more than two classes (with good reason), you will receive a semester grade of 5.
