Objectives

The course aims at providing students with the linguistic and the metalinguistic knowledge and competences of Spanish language and culture. More specifically,

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
The students will have to achieve a A2/B1level of Spanish in all four abilities (listening, reading, writing & speaking), according to the CEFR (cfr. (IT: http://people.unica.it/simonamariacocco/files/2017/05/dalframeworkeuropeo.pdf, ES: http://people.unica.it/simonamariacocco/files/2017/05/cvc_mer_esp.pdf).
From the metalinguistic viewpoint, the students will acquire good skills on Spanish Phonology, Phonetics and Morphosyntax. More specifically:

APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
-The students will be able to understand and describe the metalinguistic features studied during the course and apply them to the analysis of short texts;
-they will be able to recognize, describe and classify the main sounds of Spanish language;
-they will be able to recognize and describe the internal structure of words, and how to form news ones;
-within the A2/B1 level of Spanish, according to the CEFR, they will be able to interact in Spanish in different comunicative contexts;

MAKING JUDGEMENTS
-the students will distinguish, among the theories studied, the most appropriate ones to analyse texts
-they will evaluate contexts and choose the most effective communicative strategies.

COMMUNICATION SKILLS
The students will:
- understand texts and conversations in Spanish;
- effectively and efficiently convey information and ideas (at the A2/B1 level);
- discuss and present the metalinguistic issues studied in Spanish.

LEARNING SKILLS
The students will acquire those tools which will enable them to autonomously study and increase their linguistic and metalinguistic skills in the Spanish language and culture.

Prerequisites

A A1 level, according to Common European Frame of Reference, is required (IT: http://people.unica.it/simonamariacocco/files/2017/05/dalframeworkeuropeo.pdf, ES: http://people.unica.it/simonamariacocco/files/2017/05/cvc_mer_esp.pdf).

Verification of learning

The final exam will include both a WRITTEN part and an ORAL one in two parts (same day):

1) conversation with a mother tongue instructor
2) oral exam about the theoretical part

The exam must be completed in all its parts within two exam sessions.

The evaluation aims at assessing what follows:

- the written part of the exam will test the students’ acquisition of Spanish Language and Culture foreseen in the A2/B1 level of the CEFR for Language). It includes a dictation to assess the orthographic competence; a grammar and vocabulary questionnaire and the writing of a short text.
- The first part of the oral exam (conversation) will test the students reading comprehension of a texts about the Spanish culture, taken from Pierozzi’s book, and the ability to talk about it in Spanish.
- The second part of the oral exam will require the students to discuss in Spanish the issues on Spanish Linguistics dealt with during the 20-hour lectures. They will have to show to have acquired the right terminology and concepts, and that they can apply them to practical cases by analysing the phonological and morphoyintactic features of a sentence.
The vote is expressed in 18-30/30. To access the oral tests students must have obtained a minimum of 18/30 vote in the written test. To obtain 30/30 cum laude students have to demonstrate an excellent competence and knowledge of all the parts of the program.
The students will be allowed to skip the written test and the conversation part of the oral exam if they hold recently obtained international certifications (DELE, minimum level B1).
For those students who will regularly attend at least the 70% of the lectures, the final mark will be made up of mid-term assessments as well, and of the practical work carried out in class, which will be evaluated (portfolio).
