Exam description

An oral test for the Theoretical Module and a written and oral test for Lettorato.

Assessment methods

Theoretical module

The Theoretical Module part will consist of the oral discussion of a short paper written in Spanish by the students on a theoretical or practical topic included in the syllabus. The assessment will take into account familiarity with the contents of the bibliographical references and the ability to apply them both in terms of critical reflection and analysis of texts or transcriptions of interactions in Spanish. 

Lettorato

The Lettorato part will consist of an oral and written test. The written test will include the production of an argumentative text (a letter to the Editor), a short commentary of a literary text and exercises aimed at testing lexical and grammar skills. The oral test will be a conversation on current affairs topics.
