Syllabus
Prerequisites:
Target skills and knowledge:: The course module “PHONÉTIQUE ET ORTHOÉPIE” is to be considered as Level 1 of the three-year course ‘Lingue, Letterature e Culture Moderne’. At the end of their first year, students are expected to have acquired the fundamental skills of phonetic awareness, thus developing and/or strengthening their oral and written competences. While exploring the French sound system, students are led towards a progressive awareness of the orthoepic significance of suprasegmental norms (stress, tone and so forth). Special attention is also paid to improving lexical competence in the main basic lexical domains.
Course unit contents: 1.COURSE MODULE “PHONÉTIQUE ET ORTHOÉPIE” (I semester) : description of the French sound system, French graphic system, orthoepy; basic lexical competence.
2.TRAINING LANGUAGE MODULES (I and II semester): students are expected to attend the training language modules held in both the first and second semester.

(Students are expected to buy this volume as it will be used along the three/five-year course)

An audio-book (chosen by the student)
Assessment criteria: The general examination is composed of both written and oral sections. The final grade is the average of the different tests scores
The written portion precedes the oral examination in time and is composed by two separate tests:
- a test taking place at the end of the training modules
- a written exam aimed at testing the theoretical contents of the course module
The final oral exam assesses the use of correct pronunciation and intonation. The student is asked to:
- read a passage taken from the audiobook
- read passages, dialogues etc. proposed by the teacher
- show he can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment); communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters; describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need. (CEFR A2 Waystage level)
