    OVERVIEW

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course (8 and 9 CFU) aims at understanding both the linguistic and cultural content that allows the student to use them in relation to the chosen course of study to which they are linked thanks to the contextualization of linguistic phenomena in the contemporary world. Through language we will stimulate reflection on the social and political contexts of the different areas of study to provide the tools for reading the international environment to which they refer in a continuous confrontation with the Italian, European and non-European contexts. The level of competence achieved in the three-year degree will allow the student to face integration into the world of work thanks to the ability to communicate information and suggest solutions to their interlocutors’ problems as well as to face the continuation of their university career thanks to the consolidation of basic language skills. As for the three-year learning outcomes, the student will have a linguistic repertoire sufficient to explain the salient points of a concept and express thoughts on abstract or cultural topics. They will know, despite the errors, how to express themselves clearly and expose a simple and sequential narration. (Level B1 CEFR)

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

This group of students will present themselves to the oral exam with the sum of the evaluations in progress which will be the average for the final evaluation.

    Not attending studentes: They must take the written exam on the first date, which will follow, in case of passing, the oral exam.Students with an accredited certification of knowledge of the language corresponding to or above B1 level are exempt from the written test.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    Attending students can divide the examination of the linguistic competence assessment into three parts through ongoing tests which they will have to support in December, March and April. If the evaluation of the three tests is refused, the student can do the traditional written exam (consisting of two tests) starting from the first useful date. If the evaluation of the first test (spelling competence) is less than 15/30 the student will not be able to take the second test, even though he can re-appear at the next exam session. The oral exam will focus on the discussion in the language of the contents proposed in class and available on Aulaweb.

    For non-attending students: if the evaluation of the first test (spelling competence) is less than 15/30 the student can not take the second test even though he can re-appear at the next exam session.
