The linguistics module is made up of weekly lectures (3 hours a week over 10 weeks in the second semester).

The practical module is made up of weekly classes (4 hours a week over 20 weeks, i.e. 10 weeks per semester).

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Swedish Language I is divided into two parts: a one-semester linguistics module ("modulo teorico"), which is held in the second semester, and a two-semester practical language module ("modulo pratico" or "esercitazioni" or "lettorato").

Each component ("modulo pratico" and "modulo teorico") is assessed separately. The practical module is assessed at the end of the second semester through a written exam paper (grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing) and an oral exam (grammar, conversation). The linguistics module is assessed through an oral exam at the end of the second semester.

The final mark is calculated as follows:

33% (of the overall mark) is the written practical part;

33% (of the overall mark) is the oral practical part;

33% (of the overall mark) is the linguistics component.
