Lectures, plus language practice sessions and seminars. All classes are held in English. The course consists of 30 lectures (60 hours) over two semesters taught by the course professor(s).
In addition to these lectures, language practice sessions ("esercitazioni") are scheduled (see the official timetable). Students are strongly advised to attend them.
Language practice sessions are designed to help students improve their overall language skills (grammar & vocabulary, writing, reading, listening and speaking), which are expected to reach C1 plus level in the CEFR.
Writing seminars are also scheduled in the second term in preparation for the exam. Students are strongly advised to take advantage of these opportunities to practice their language skills.
