EL0200 English for Academic Purposes B+ This tutor was sick for several weeks and our consultations were pushed to last minute. From previous posts, it seems that he is always absent for sickness. Could this be allowed? Also, we are forced to do 12 hours of independent learning by attending writing workshops and conversation club to get stamp on passport. The whole idea sounds childish as I got similar things in primary school to get new file or pen. Now in Sem B, I have to do the same thing: 12 hours of their repeated workshops and conversation club. Can't see the point of it.
