Course description

The course aims to provide students with a solid linguistic preparation, aimed in particular at the development and acquisition of the skills they need to approach to a text, also a specialized one, in Spanish. The lessons, carried out by the teacher in language and with a communicative approach, will tend to favor understanding, reading skills, written and oral expression, up to the acquisition of the B1/B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). At the same time, the course aims to provide students with knowledge, in an intercultural perspective, related to the history, culture, constitutional order and economy of the countries of the reference language. The course is also aimed at introducing students to the study of terminology and economic and commercial language.

Prerequisites

Those presenting at the beginning of the course a global preparation not corresponding to the A1-A2 level are invited to follow the Spanish language labs.
