OVERVIEW

The course is aimed at students approaching the language within a concrete field of action related to cultural issues in the social sciences. The course is open to absolute beginners and experienced speakers.

At the end of the course the student will have reached level B1 of the European Framework of Reference for Languages. The course is annual.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course, thanks to the acquisition of knowledge and skills corresponding to the B1 level of the MCER, the student will be able to produce and connect simple texts on the political and institutional issues of the Spanish-speaking world analyzed during the year.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course, of 8 and 9 credits, aims to bring students closer to the study and analysis of some components of the Spanish language and their concrete use in different communicative situations, taking into consideration distinct dialectal variants of the Hispanic world, from a contrastive (IT/SP) and intercultural perspective. The course aims to enable students to reach a level of linguistic-communicative competence equal to B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Foreign Languages.  The learning objectives are:

To know and be able to understand the morphological structures of the Spanish language.

To be able to recognise and describe the morphological, graphic units of the Spanish language; to be able to use derivative and compositional processes to form words;

To be able to explain in a simple manner, but using the appropriate metalanguage, the contrastive interlinguistic (IT-SPA) and intralinguistic (European and Hispano-American SPA) differences and the fundamental phonetic and morphological phenomena.

To recognise and describe the main geographical and social varieties of the Spanish and Spanish-American language.

To develop not only sociolinguistic competence, but also existential competence ("knowing how to be", in the CEFR) through the construction of an intercultural personality that helps to know and manage without prejudice the rich linguistic and cultural range offered by the Spanish language.

To be able to appreciate the richness of multilingualism, of dialectal varieties, of situations of contact in the Hispanic world, also in a migratory context. To develop the ability to make critical and constructive judgements on the linguistic policies implemented in the Hispanic world.

To be able to present the course content clearly, using specific and correct metalanguage.

To be able to use the acquired terminology and linguistic skills in the description and critical discussion of the linguistic, sociolinguistic and historical-cultural contents of the course.

To be able to self-assess acquired competences.

To be able to identify topics of study and research of interest in the Spanish-speaking world.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

All students must register for the examination via the official Unige page: bookings close automatically one week before the date set in order to allow the lecturer and reader to manage the numerous types of written test. 

The course examination with the teacher is oral. In order to take the course examination with the teacher it is necessary to have passed the written reading test. The aim is to test attainment of level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). 

The oral examination with the teacher, which will take the form of a discussion, will cover the topics and concepts explained in class and considered in the prescribed bibliography and other texts suggested during the lectures. The aim of the examination is to test the depth and breadth of the student's knowledge, to assess their ability to critically analyse, discuss and evaluate the main themes of the course and to ascertain their ability to structure an argument and communicate what they have learnt.

The minimum mark for passing the examination is 18/30.

The written examination is disqualified from the oral examination. The recognition of certification or level of knowledge of Spanish as a mother tongue will be assessed and tested by the reader and in the case of a positive judgement may lead to exemption from the written test.

Only attending students will be able to carry out any in itinere tests (group work, presentations, written tests).

 

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The written exam will assess the achievement of the exit level while the oral exam will assess, in addition to the level of knowledge of Spanish, the ability to orient oneself in the proposed content and to establish relationships and comparisons. The summative assessment is expressed in thirtieths.
