The teaching module Lingua 2 mod. 1 is part of the "attività formative di base" of the Degree in Language and Cultural Mediation and aims at enabling students to acquire a solid communicative competence of the English language. Mod. 1 and mod 2 are connected to each other to form the official course "Lingua 2". Mod. 1 is a semestral module which will be completed by applied, practical language classes called "esercitazioni", which will be part of the final exam. The module will explore English morphology, lexical and semantic linguistics in a contrastive approach with the Italian language. Language competence will be developed at the B2 level of QCER.
At the end of the course students will be enabled to understand and produce oral and written texts in English as a B2 level of QCER; they will be able to recognize and illustrate the grammar and syntactic aspects of English and Italian in a contrastive perspective; they will be able to use the appropriate linguistic terminology and will be able to function in communicative situations at the B2 level of QCER.
They will also be able to use the material provided by their teacher in an autonomous way and will be able to self-assess the skills and competences acquired during the course.
Pre-requisites of this course are a level B1 plus of the QCER and an excellent competence of their native language, usually Italian.

The final exam will consist of two tests, a written and an oral one, which will test the competence on the topics explored in the 2 modules, Mod 1 and 2 of Lingua Inglese 2. Students will be allowed 60 minutes to complete the written test, which will focus on all the language aspects illustrated in the course. The oral test, which will deal with a conversation with the teacher about general topics and a short presentation on a specific theme explored in the course of the esercitazioni, is obligatory and will focus on the communicative competence of English at the B2 level of QCER. The two marks of the written and the oral part will be calculated for the final result of the exam.
