    AIMS AND CONTENT

    The course aims to provide a linguistic and cultural preparation of a pragmatic nature that, in relation to communication skills, reaches the B1 level (basic), ie a competence to solve situations that requires a high communicative capacity in spoken and written language, as well as in the production of clear, correct and detailed texts on subjects that are known or interest the student. For some  students, the course includes theoretical lessons and exercises on technical languages ​​of economy and tourism.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    At the end of the Polish III course for 6 ECTS, the student should acquire all the abilities foreseen by the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) at level B1 and some of the level B2.


    The students of the course for 9 credits will also attend the theoretical module, divided into two parts.


    The theoretical module conducted by prof. Quercioli proposes to give an introduction to the terminology of translation studies and to accompany the student in achieving the ability to translate a short literary text; they will also be given the tools to compare, where possible, different translation choices made on the same text. The elaboration of a critical reasoning that allows to apply the notions learned in the course of the teaching to the concrete studied texts will be essential.


    The theoretical module led by prof. Kowalcze deals in detail with some arguments of Polish and Italian contrastive grammar, especially in the context of lexical derivation and semantics. Students will also know the theoretical bases of Polish-Italian bilingualism and will analyze the most common errors due to interference with the Italian language.

    In the first semester, the teaching will be held via Teams and Aulaweb platforms. In the second semester, if the sanitary situation will allow to it, in traditional (in presence) way

    The Language exercises program is balanced between the study of new grammatical topics and the development of solid lexical and communicative competence. The course deals with the notions of descriptive grammar of the Polish language foreseen at level B1-B2, including all the elements of nominal, pronominal and verbal flexion. Students will also know the system of numerals and various types of lexical derivation. From the beginning of the course particular attention is paid to the interaction of students in Polish in the various communicative situations from level B1-B2. The course participants will be invited to write in a regular manner various texts whose topics will correspond to the program.


    During the lessons of the theoretical module, prof. Kowalcze will address in detail some topics of Polish and Italian contrastive grammar drawn from the program of the Literature and will explain the theoretical bases of Polish-Italian bilingualism.


    The part of the theoretical module of prof. Quercioli consists of classroom lectures dedicated to translation exercises, interpretation and commentary on literary texts drawn from the program of Polish Literature 2 and advanced teaching. Both autonomous translations will be produced and translations already published will be examined, and comparisons will be made between several versions of the same text. A brief introductory text on Translations Studies will also be studied

     

    Non-attending students may take the final examination of the course but are invited to contact the professors at the beginning of the academic year to agree on a possible programme adapted to their training needs and Polish language skills.

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    The exam consists of an oral test for the theoretical module (for the 9 CFU course only) and a written test and an oral test for language exercises. In each of the three exam sessions there is a written session and two oral exams.
    

    Dr. KowalczeThe written test relating to language exercises consists of a dictation, a short composition in Polish, various listening exercises and a grammar test, organized in a series of different exercises, on the topics covered during the year. Passing the written test is a prerequisite for access to the oral test.

    The oral exam relating to language exercises consists of a short conversation in Polish on the topics covered during the year and with the aim of verifying the grammatical and communicative skills acquired by students throughout the year.


    Prof. Quercioli: oral exam, during which will be verified both the technical ability to translate a short literary text and that of arguing on the linguistic and lexical choices presented.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    Prof. Kowalcze: during the academic year there are 3-4 written intermediate tests ('in itinere') with the aim of providing adequate preparation for the end-of-year test.

    The final exam of the course is aimed at verifying the effective acquisition of the four language skills at the level required by the educational objectives of the course, as well as the metalinguistic and translation skills developed by the student during the lessons. The final grade of the course is calculated on the basis of the average of the partial grades obtained: 1) from the intermediate 'in itinere' tests, 2) the written exam of the lettorato, 3) the oral exam of the lectorate, 4) the oral exam of the theoretical module (for those taking the 9CFU course).


    Prof. Quercioli: the oral exam aims to ascertain the following aspects of student preparation: ability to present the knowledge acquired and internalized with respect to the basic concepts of the course, ie the definition of the translation activity. The ability to autonomously translate a short text and to compare, justifying them, different translation choices, will be evaluated. Course attendance and accuracy in basic terminology will be evaluated positively.
