    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course aims to provide the necessary knowledge in order to develop skills in speech analysis in Spanish language (written and oral communication), also taking into account diatopic, diastratic and diaphasic variation and the different textual typologies.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    THEORETICAL MODULE

    The theoretical module aims to lead students to know, recognise and be able to analyse the different communicative uses of language, conditioned by the contexts and purposes of social interaction. The course (theoretical but with practical analysis activities) aims to lead students to:

    • Be able to identify and explain the phenomena of meaning and interpretation of communication by not only considering the linguistic code.
    • Be able to apply to the analysis of oral communication the fundamental factors that intervene in the communicative situation and that determine its appropriateness and appropriate interpretation.
    • Be able to apply to the production and interpretation of written texts the fundamental factors which intervene in the communicative situation and which determine its appropriateness and appropriate interpretation.
    • Be able to recognise and describe units of conversation and be able to segment oral texts.

    LETTORATO:

    C1 Target Level in Spanish according to the Common European Reference Framework. The course aims to  consolidate the linguistic-communicative competence, also in terms of metalinguistic analysis and pragmatics; it allows to achieve not only good comprehension and production skills (both oral and written) but also to communicate interactively in a fluent and spontaneous way. 

    PREREQUISITES

    The Spanish Language 2 course is propaedeutic; one must have passed its examination to be able to take Spanish Language 3.

    TEACHING METHODS

    Lectures and practical exercises for the theory module and the lettorato.

    Non-attending students are required to contact the two lecturers to inform them of their absence and to agree on any different course programmes, additional bibliography, etc.

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    THEORETICAL MODULE

    written examination of an analysis of a written or oral text and a short oral interview on the prescribed bibliography.

    LETTORATO
    The examination consists of a written and an oral test, for a total of 30 marks.

The oral exam consists of an interactive conversation on current topics examined during the course.

     

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    Theoretical module:

    The assessment will check the ability to apply the acquired knowledge critically to the analysis of written and oral discourse in Spanish. Students who have participated frequently in the practical activities in the classroom will be exempt from some parts of the examination.

     Lettorato: written tests will check reading comprehension and written expression, as well as lexical, morphosyntactic and grammatical skills to reach a C1 competence. The oral test will check expression and oral interaction skills on current topics addressed during the course in the classroom.

    The following will be taken into account for the assessment and the final grade:

    - the ability to identify relevant information in a text and paraphrase its structure;

    - fluency and correction;

    - cohesion and discursive coherence;

    - lexical mastering;

    - personal critical and argumentative contribution.
