General aims

The course of Albanian language is among the characterizing lessons common to the course of study in Languages, civilizations and language sciences. It consists of a theoretical module during the second semester as well as linguistic exercises. It aims to provide students with the linguistic knowledge necessary for the understanding and use of the Albanian language in Albanian-speaking countries, in everyday contexts, as well as in academic and specialized contexts. The objective of the course is to provide first year students with a competency equivalent to the A2 level in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages; to provide second year students with a competency equivalent to the B1 level; to provide third year students with a competency equivalent to the B2 level.
1. Knowledge and understanding
Knowledge and understanding of the phonological, morphological, syntactic and lexical structures of Albanian language.
Knowledge of communication strategies, through a practical and theoretical training in Albanian language.

2. Applying knowledge and understanding

Be able to recognize and describe the phonological and morpho-syntactic phenomena of Albanian language.
Know how to use language skills to produce and understand a text or message, written and oral, placing it in the right cultural context.
Know how to interact in Albanian language in formal and informal situations, recognizing language diversity and linguistic register.

4. Communication skills
Be able to communicate in a clear and structured Albanian language, using a terminology appropriate to the communicative context.

For starting the study of Albanian language (Albanian language 1), there are no requirements. For the lessons of Albanian Language 2, it is required a competency equivalent to the A2 level. For the lessons of Albanian Language 3 it is expected to know Albanian Language at B1 level of the common European framework.
The module is based on theoretical lessons of Albanian language. It includes the study of the basic elements of phonetics and phonology (phonemes, graphemes, accent, hyphenation); the study of the morphology of names, pronouns, adjectives and all categories associated to them (gender, number, case); the study of the verbal system, with all its categories (person, tense, mood, aspect). It also includes the study of Albanian syntax. In particular, it deals with the formation of simple clauses, such as declaratives, interrogatives, negatives, imperatives and complex and embedded clauses, such as subjunctives, modals, relatives, interrogatives, hypotheticals, finals. Besides phonology, morphology and syntax, this module introduces students to Albanian lexicon, which will gradually developed and strengthened, with particular attention to those forms that reflect historical and cultural evolutionary processes that have invested Albania in recent decades.

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 Albanian 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 Albanian 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 Albanian Language 1 and Albanian Language 2, the written test includes grammar test and dictation. For students of Albanian 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 grammatical knowledge acquired during the course and aims to verify the level of theoretical and practical preparation in the Albanian language.
