Prerequisites: No prerequisites are requested for the first year. Attendance is highly recommended.
Target skills and knowledge: At the end of their first year, students are expected to have acquired theoretical and methodological bases for further studyof morphosyntactical structures.
The language training modules held by mother-tongue lector in both the I and II semester will provide students with the language skills needed for effective use of the Polish language as a vehicle of communication, that is, provide them with the capacity for oral and written expression and comprehension skills. Students are expected to attend the language training modules in both the first and second semester.
The target level of linguistic competence envisaged is A1 / A2.
Examination methods: The general examination is composed as follows: an oral interview aimed at testing the acquisition of the theoretical contents of the monographic programme (basic structures of the Polish language). This part can be taken in the winter session at the end of the monographic course or in the summer session.
A written / oral exam (in summer session) aimed at testing the practical skills acquired in the course of the annual training lessons: the exam will consist of a written test, composed of two parts: a section on grammar exercises, and a written production test (composition) and of an oral test too.
Assessment criteria: The final exam aims at verifying the acquisition of the four linguistic skills (written and oral comprehension, written and oral production) at the level indicated in the section “learning outcomes”.
The test shall be considered satisfactory if it is evaluated with results equal to or greater than 18/30
The final grade is the result of the weighted average of the marks obtained in the oral interview on the monographic course and in the written test.
Course unit contents: Introduction to the basic structures of the Polish language. The course focuses on phonological, morphological, morphophonological and grammatical analysis, also from a contrastive point of view.
The structure of the lexicon: Chromonyms in the Polish language; The names for kinship relations in the Polish language (prof. V. Nosilia)
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Frontal lectures are to provide the necessary theoretical ground for practical studies of the morphological and syntactical structures of the languages.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Course material comprises texts and resources made available during the course. Further bibliography will be provided during the course.
