    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)
