Learning outcomes General objective --> Reach level C1.1-C1.2 of the CEFR, taking into account two aspects:
1) The specificity of teaching Spanish to Portuguese speakers (close languages).
2) Training not only competent ELE users, but also future ELE teachers in Portugal, translators, etc.
Specific objectives:
• Use the Spanish language flexibly and effectively for social, academic or professional purposes;
• Understand all types of texts (written, oral, audiovisual), even if they cover unknown or complex subjects;
• Express yourself accurately and naturally, orally or in writing, in all types of communicative situations, demonstrating mastery of the mechanisms of organization, articulation and cohesion of speech;
• Interact appropriately and fluidly with native speakers, adapting to the situation and interlocutor(s);
• Detect and correct interlanguage errors (“portunhol”);
• Master the UC contents;
• Know how the linguistic system works and its use.
Syllabus The contents were designed so that the student can achieve the expected learning objectives, including the linguistic skills that, taking the CEFR as a reference, characterize a C1.1/C1.2 level. Given the progressive nature of the process of learning a foreign language, and also the specificities of the aforementioned process between nearby languages, the syllabus seeks to allow the recovery, consolidation and expansion of the communicative competence acquired in the curricular units already attended, so that , at the end of the semester, the learner is in a position to progress to more advanced levels of proficiency (mastery or C2).
