Syllabus
Prerequisites: Students must have a B2 level of English in all 4 skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening) as certified by an internationally-recognised certificate, or by the TAL tests held by the University Language Centre.
Target skills and knowledge: The course will encourage students to develop :
- the ability to argue convincingly
- an awareness of non-verbal communication
- the use of rhetoric in public speaking
- presentation skills
- communication skills including pronunciation
Examination methods: For students attending 80% of lessons, assessment is by a written assignment, class-work and a final presentation.

For non-attending students, the final exam is based on the book "Views in the News" (see here for further information https://elearning.unipd.it/spgi/course/view.php?id=61)
Assessment criteria: For attending students, the assessment criteria will be discussed in class and with peers, based on the observations made, as well as correct language use and fluency.

For non attending-students the exam will take into account fluency in English, ability to respond to the questions and the relevance of answers, and the structure of the text written. (see here for further information https://elearning.unipd.it/spgi/course/view.php?id=61).
Course unit contents: the course is based on the following activities
- developing strategies for analysing and producing written texts and presentations
- analysis of political discourse
- the ability to gather and organise, then develop further written and oral presentations in English.
Further information will be published on the moodle platform in the section ‘Informazioni Lingua Inglese Magistrale’
