A theoretical and critical reflection on the characteristics of specialized and literary translation practice will be combined with translation practice, stimulating discussion on the translation problems encountered in such texts, as well as on the most effective solution strategies. To do so, examples of existing translations will also be the object of critical analysis, from a comparative perspective.
The module contents are organized in such a way that they are never repeated in the course of the three years of the Bachelor’s Degree Programme, in order to enable students to access, every year, in different knowledge. They take also into account the presence of Polish speaking students, for whom the teaching of the language arises as a moment of reflection on the properties and structure of the native language and verification of their ability to develop methods of study.

Language exercises combine to give a practical knowledge of Polish language, through dictations, conversations, readings, exercises, listening materials.

The methods to be adopted to ensure that the objectives have been achieved are written and oral tests, both compulsory. For students of Polish Language 1, Polish Language 2, and Polish Language 3 the written test includes grammar test, dictation and translation. The written exam serves to check that the degree of knowledge about the grammatical structures of each level is reached. The oral exam consists of checking the knowledge acquired during the course and aims to verify the level of theoretical and practical preparation in the Polish language.
