Learning outcomes

Lo studente al termine del corso è in grado di comprendere senza sforzo praticamente tutto ciò che ascolta o legge. Sa riassumere informazioni tratte da diverse fonti, orali e scritte, ristrutturando in un testo coerente le argomentazioni e le parti informative. Si esprime spontaneamente, in modo molto scorrevole e preciso e rende distintamente sottili sfumature di significato anche in situazioni piuttosto complesse.
