Exam description

A written test for the Hispanic Linguistics Module and a written and oral test for Lettorato.

Assessment methods

Hispanic Linguistics Module

The exam will consist of a written commentary in Spanish of a fragment of oral political discourse. Grading 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. 

Correction and adequacy  of academic writing in Spanish will also be taken into account.

During the semester a compulsory assignment will be submitted, which will be part of the final grade.

Lettorato

The Lettorato part will consist of both an oral and a 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.
