Learning Objectives

Understands a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognises implicit meaning. Expresses him/herself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. Uses language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. Can produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.



In this part of your "lettorato" we will be working mainly on writing and grammar in both semester 1 and semester 2. 

CEFR level of activities during course: (B2+) / C1


The various types of writing activity will focus mainly on writing different types of essay, regarding a variety of subjects. Other types of written text may then be added.

We will also concentrate on the quality and organization of the written text, giving attention to various aspects such as: respecting the question, brainstorming and planning, using a plan, well-organized paragraphs, the various parts of the text, linkers and connectors, the appropriate register, essay terminlogy and acquiring new vocabulary, synonyms and paraphrasing, using quotations, appropriate grammar, accuracy and correcting drafts, etc.


Further indications regarding the grammar program can be found in the "Information" section of the group page on the Moodle platform. All topics of the course grammar book (see below) need to be covered, through a variety of activities in the classroom, through homework and/or independent study. Additional advanced grammar points will be added throughout the year as necessary, using other materials made available on Moodle. Grammar points will mainly be dealt with in the order in which they are needed for our writing.
