to facilitate the phonetics, the correct intonation and the reading of Spanish in its peninsular and Euro-American varieties; to enable students to translate from Spanish into Italian, and vice versa, oral messages and texts (economic, historical-social, political and, especially, tourism-related); accustom them to a good command of spelling, diction, morphology and syntax; introduce them in the colloquial language, progressively expanding the vocabulary (corporate, legal, technical, public relations) in order to reach, as close as possible, concept in the same language. These objectives are met by using an inductive method that does not start from the theoretical norm but from the analysis of the linguistic forms.
to attend the course students must have a level of knowledge of the language equivalent to the B1, presenting to the teacher a certificate of equivalence obtained at the University Language Center (CLA, Centro Linguistico di Ateneo). Certificates from other universities or courses held in other institutions are valid for 2 years from the date they are issued.
the course consists of 72 hours of lectures divided as follows: 40 hours of theories and 32 hours of practice. The laboratory will be carried out through paper material delivered by the teacher and with audio-visual material aimed at the auditory comprehension of the language, the translation of the texts, the oral expression. At each lesson, a grammar test will be proposed on what was explained during the theoretical part.
