AIMS AND CONTENT LEARNING OUTCOMES The course aims at a linguistic preparation which, in relation to communicative competence, reaches the A2 level, in order to allow the student: a) to have a more confident command of the language in a wide range of situations; b) to discuss interactively on practical matters expressing the personal point of view, their agreement or disagreement; c) to describe lived experiences and events as well as future projects, motivating the reasons succinctly; d) to produce a simple text concerning the family environment or the sphere of particular interests. AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES At the end of the course, the student should acquire most of the skills provided for in the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) at A2 level. PREREQUISITES The course is primarily intended for students (Italian and / or foreign) of the II year of Modern Languages and Cultures, who have passed the Polish Language I exam (of the first year). However, it can also be used for other students (e.g. Polish native speakers). Study regulations permitting, the course can also be included in the Study Plan as a 3rd language (free choice or other activities) of 6 CFU. Other interested students should contact the teacher to agree on a possible program adapted to their educational needs. TEACHING METHODS Theoretical Module: 30 hours of theoretical lectures (I semester) - it is provided for students who choose the course for 9 credits Lecture: 80 hours of language exercises (40 in the first semester and 40 in the second semester) - it is provided for students who choose the course for 6 or 9 credits Unless otherwise indicated due to the evolution of the health situation, the course will take place in traditional (in presence) mode. SYLLABUS/CONTENT The course presents the notions of descriptive grammar of the Polish language foreseen at level A2, including elements of phonetics, phonology, nominal inflection, verbal inflection, the system of numerals, adjectives and adverbs, and some notions of syntax. Thanks to the use of the communicative approach from the beginning of the course, particular attention is paid to the interaction in the Polish language in the various communication situations provided for at level A2. All new grammar topics are placed in a communicative context. RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY M.Foland-Kugler, Grammatica essenziale della lingua polacca, Warszawa 2006. J. Machowska, Gramatyka?
