Final Examination: 

The assessment takes place through a written exam at the end of the course. The test consists of questions related to the program carried out in class; it has the purpose to assess the ability of the student to understand and synthesize information and communicate using the language and its structures in an appropriate manner with respect to the context, especially the medical-scientific domain. The duration of the test is 60 minutes. To pass the exam, the student must obtain a score of no less than 18/30 (eighteen/thirty).

Voto Finale

This course aims to revise the pre-intermediate and intermediate grammatical structures (A2/B1-B2 of the CEFR - Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), necessary to convey certain linguistic functions, and to provide students with the tools to deal with Academic English texts focusing on scientific English.
Through theoretical and practical exercises aimed at deepening grammatical structures and vocabulary, at the end of the course the student will be able to:
- express themselves in English in an appropriate manner with respect to the context
- analyze short scientific texts in English
- understand oral and written productions on science-related topics
- use English in a flexible and effective manner in the academic and professional fields.

The acquisition of the different skills will be developed through a two-fold approach:
1. the study of English grammar for the comprehension and communication in English (oral and written) at pre-intermediate and intermediate level
2. the use of English in the scientific field focusing on the lexicon and the morpho-syntactic structures of Academic English.
