Prerequisites (for future units)
The course provides the students with advanced skills in Swedish language to reach the C1 level of the CEFR. In the theorical module the diacronic evolution of the Scandinavian languages will be taken into consideration.
Building on the skills acquired during the Bachelor's degree, the course aims at teaching the students how to use the Swedish language in advanced contexts. In order to to this, the course is divided into two parts: a one-semester linguistics module and a two-semester practical language module
The linguistic module aims at presenting the main trends in contemporary Swedish, paying particular attention to the spoken language and its non standard varieties, such as the language of the immigrants and the youth slang. The English influence on Swedish will also be taken into consideration.
The practical language module aims at bringing students to the C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages in reading, listening, speaking and writing. At the end of the course, the students will be able to understand a wide range of demanding, longer clauses, recognizing their implicit meaning, to express fluently their ideas without much searching for expressions, to use the language flexibly and effectlvely for social, academic and professional purposes, to produceclear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organizational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.
A linguistic competence equivalent to the B2 level of the Common European Framework.
During the first semester both the theoretical and the practical part will be held online on Teams and Aulaweb.
The theoretical module "Trends in contemporary Swedish" consists of an introduction to the main trends influencing, on a syncronic level, contemporary Swedish, paying particular attention to the spoken language. In this, the language spoken in multi-ethnic, immigrant-dense areas, youth slang and the lexical and syntactic influence of English on the Swedish language will be taken into consideration.
The annual practical course will focus on the reading and comment of complex texts, on reading and listening exercises and on the production of both oral and written argumentative texts.

The practlcal course is assessed through a written exam constituted by reading, listening and the writing of an argumentative essay. A monolingual dictionary can be used during this part of the exam. Speaking skills are assessed in a oral conversation on current themes and events.
The theoretical module is assessed in an oral exam - in either Italian or Swedish according to the candidate's preference - on the topics of the course.
The oral exam on the linguistics module will deal with the most significant features of the phonology, morphology, syntax and vocabulary of the Scandinavian languages in their historical phases, on the periodization problems, as well as on the syncronic relationship between the Scandinavian languages.
The practical exam will verify the candidate's ability to understand and produce highly complex texts both in written and in spoken form.
The final mark is the arithmetic mean of the marks obtained in the three parts, each weighing 33% ot the total.
