The objective is to reach the A2 language level of the CEFR and partly the B1 level (written comprehension) for the exercises and to have adequate knowledge in linguistic analysis for the monographic part. In particular, the monographic part intends to propose the tools and develop the necessary skills to deal with the study and use of the German language in a reflective and metalinguistic way, identifying the main areas of analysis also in a contrastive German-Italian perspective (with particular reference to morphology, syntax and phonetics/phonology).
Expected learning outcomes
Knowledge: As far as the exercises are concerned, the student must have knowledge of the basic grammatical and lexical structures (level A2 of the CEFR). As far as the monographic part is concerned, the student must be able to use the terminology (in German and Italian) relating to the main linguistic phenomena of the German language with reference to morphology, syntax, phonetics/phonology and handwriting and to define them adequately.
Skills: As far as the exercises are concerned, the student must be able to: 1. correctly pronounce words, phrases and periods contextualized in German; 2. understand short written and oral texts; 3. structure and use syntactically correct and semantically relevant main and secondary sentences; 4. to produce short written and oral texts on topics of daily and current relevance. As far as the monographic part is concerned, the student should be able to: 1. actively use the phonetic, morphological and syntactic knowledge learned (correct pronunciation, recognition of morphemes, identification of the meaning of words, appropriate structuring and analysis of German main and secondary sentences); 2. autonomously analyse short German texts from an informative and linguistic (morphological, syntactic and phonological) point of view on the basis of the acquired competences; 3. to produce short German texts of specific textual genres.
