Course unit content

The course aims to provide knowledge and analysis tools allowing to understand and describe the structure of a text: in the first part we will deal with the study of textual typologies on the basis of a functional criterion, noting their specific characteristics at the language level (on the morphological level , syntactic and lexical).
In the second part of the course, issues related to the adaptation of some text types will be addressed: through the search for elements of difficulty and the identification of criteria and strategies for simplifying a text, students will prepare concrete and individualized examples of rewriting accessible to the level of knowledge of the learner.
At the end of the course, students will have acquired a level of Russian equal to B2 (TRKI).

Teaching methods

The activities will take place in presence. During the lessons, mainly frontal moments will alternate with moments of interaction with the student. To promote active participation in the course, various individual and small group activities will be proposed, including through the use of the resources available online, on Elly or Teams. • Non-attending students (especially Russian-speaking students) are asked to contact the teacher.

Assessment methods and criteria

The written exam is preparatory to the oral exam:
The written exam includes:
- grammar test (dictionary not allowed)
- audio test
- production test (letter)
- summary.
The oral exam involves the preparation of a text adapted to readings prepared by the teacher during the year, in order to verify the practical application of what is presented in the course, as well as the interview on material and topics covered during the lessons, as scheduled. . For the comprehension test, the teacher can use both material used during the course and that prepared independently by the student.
The assessment of insufficiency is determined by the lack of knowledge of the minimum course contents, by the inability to express themselves in a Russian corresponding to level B2. A sufficient evaluation (18-23 / 30) is determined by the student demonstrating that he has learned the minimum and fundamental contents of the course; from the ability to express themselves in Russian appropriate to the topic with B2 level characteristics, from independent preparation, from the ability to solve problems related to finding information and decoding complex texts, as well as formulating independent judgments. The average scores (24-27 / 30) are assigned to the student who demonstrates that he / she possesses a more than sufficient (24-25 / 30) or good (26-27 / 30) level of the evaluation indicators listed above. The highest scores (from 28/30 to 30/30 cum laude) are assigned based on the demonstration of an excellent to excellent level of the evaluation indicators listed above.
If, due to the persistence of the health emergency, it is necessary to integrate the conduct of the exams with the remote modality, proceed as follows:
• Written exam (online): structured as above;
• Oral exam (online), on the course program and on materials shared by the teacher.
