Syllabus
Prerequisites: No prerequisite. Even if you start from an absolute beginner level, the lessons will be held in Spanish.
Target skills and knowledge: The objectives are two: the first, of a theoretical nature, it will be to provide students with a thorough knowledge of the Spanish language according to the specific degree course; the other, practical, will be to provide students with the language skills needed for effective use of the Spanish language as a vehicle of communication, that is, provide them with the capacity for oral and written expression and comprehension, translation skills and train them in the knowledge of the social norms that govern the basic linguistic uses.
Examination methods: IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE EXAMS OF THIS SUBJECT, for both attending and non-attending students (we recommend a CAREFUL reading):

a) There will be three EXAMINATION sessions for ALL students: summer, autumn and winter session. The first session for the 2016-2017 program will be June-July 2017.

b) Exam registration via UniWeb is REQUIRED, RESPECTING the closing date of the registration lists: lists will be open a few weeks before exams. If the student decides to not take the exam, it is strongly requested to unsubscribe from the registered list.

c) The three sessions have two calls: with a distance between them 15 days. The student can choose between the first or second call or choose both of them in case the student has not passed the first call or wants to improve the mark: in the latter case, the previous examination result is automatically canceled.

d) The examination will consist of a written test, composed of two parts that verify the achievement of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages level B1 (2001): a section on grammar -multiple choice and completion exercises- (it’s necessary to pass this part for the teacher to continue with the correction of the second part); and a written production test (composition). There is also an oral test at the end of the training: It is a voluntary test and gives students the opportunity to raise two points the result of the composition.

e) The test shall be satisfactory if it is evaluated with results equal to or greater than 18/30; if the test has failed, it should be done again in the following call or session.

f) The students, who intend to refuse the result of the exam, will have to express themselves using the appropriate online procedure within the terms of 7 days, starting from the publication of the examination. If the student does not express itself within this period, the exam will be registered.

g) THE PROGRAM AND TESTING ARE THE SAME FOR ALL LEVELS AND FOR ATTENDING AND NOT-ATTENDING STUDENTS.
Assessment criteria: See "Modalità di esame".
Course unit contents: A theoretical description of grammar and language use: spelling and pronunciation, morphological categories with meaning (noun, adjective, verb and adverb) and categories with morphological function (determiners, pronouns, prepositions and conjunctions) will be analyzed. The exercises will be held in the part of the course dedicated to training language (A1 Level (Beginners), A2 Level and A2 + Level) in order to practice the four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in an integrated way. They also will address the elements of Spanish and Hispanic-American civilization.
