Understanding of the topics covered will be demonstrated through presentation skills, in the sense of personalized exposition and in any case correct also in the specific language, and the ability to autonomously elaborate examples. Knowledge and understanding will be favored both with lectures and examples and through moments of confrontation and debate in the classroom.
