Assessment methods
Examination of expected learning outcomes is done through a structured examination, consisting of a written test and an oral exam.
The written test, in order to verify the achievement of the linguistic competence (level C1 of the CEFR), consists of two parts whose average results are evaluated on a 30/30 basis:
1) dictation about 10 lines (30 points)
2) grammatical test (30 points)
3) composition about 20 lines (30 points)
The oral examination, which takes place entirely in Portuguese, consists of two parts:
- the first consists of a conversational language interaction on a selection of literary texts of Lusophone authors of different historical periods and of different origins in order to verify the achievement of oral communication competence (level B2 of the CEFR, duration: about 15-20 minutes);
- the second part aims to verify the achievement of the metalinguistic competence on the contents of the teaching module (duration: 15-20 minutes).
The two parts of the oral examination are evaluated globally, resulting in a 30/30 basis evaluation that will average with the grade obtained in the written test, thus resulting in a total examination.
The written test is preliminary to the oral test, which should be done in a single sitting and within the same exam session in which the written test is passed.
Teaching methods
Frontal teaching; exercises.
Lessons are held in Portuguese.
Further information
The theoretical module of the course will be held in the second semester.
Exercises begin with the academic year.
Non-attending students are invited to contact the teacher at the beginning of the academic year and at the beginning of the second semester.
