This is important in order to acquire a correct assimilation of the contents, to be able to usefully communicate with the tutor and the teacher, to be able to carry out with the right attention the exercises for learning the foreign language and the repeated listening of the audio podcasts.

Type of evaluation

The exam will be organized with multiple-choice questions and open-ended answers. The questions will concern written or audio comprehension of the text and knowledge of the language topics in the study plan. The open-ended answers will evaluate the understanding of the text, the ability to deepen (in this case the answers can be given, in some cases and if indicated, also in Italian) and the ability to rework some content in French. It is recommended to pay particular attention to the development of open-ended answers, because they allow the teacher a full evaluation of the student with greater flexibility than the automatic calculation of the score made by the computer system.
