Traccia e soluzioni della seconda prova della Maturità 2019 per gli studenti del Liceo Linguistico.


Seconda prova scritta della Maturità 2019 al Liceo Linguistico, giovedì 20 giugno 2019, cosa cambia quest'anno per i maturandi? Attenzione, perché la prova è doppia. Cosa vuol dire? Che da quest'anno il Miur ha deciso di raddoppiare la seconda prova, mettendo alla prova i ragazzi non solo più su una materia, ma su due scelte dal Ministero e che sono caratterizzanti del proprio istituto.

Gli studenti dell'ultimo anno del Liceo Linguistico, in particolare, affrontano una traccia di lingua e cultura straniera 1 e una lingua e cultura straniera 3. La prova è divisa in due parti:

  • la comprensione di due testi scritti con 15 domande (un testo letterario e uno no, di circa 1000 parole)

  • la produzione di due testi, argomentativo e narrativo descrittivo, di 300 parole.

Seguiteci, domani saremo in diretta per tenervi aggiornati sulla traccia e sullo svolgimento nel corso di tutta la mattinata!

Traccia di inglese: Where angels fear to tread di E M Forster

They were all at Charing Cross to see Lilia off--Philip,
Harriet, Irma, Mrs. Herriton herself. Even Mrs. Theobald,
squired by Mr. Kingcroft, had braved the journey from
Yorkshire to bid her only daughter good-bye. Miss Abbott
was likewise attended by numerous relatives, and the sight
of so many people talking at once and saying such different
things caused Lilia to break into ungovernable peals of laughter.

"Quite an ovation," she cried, sprawling out of her
first-class carriage. "They'll take us for royalty. Oh,
Mr. Kingcroft, get us foot-warmers."

The good-natured young man hurried away, and Philip,
taking his place, flooded her with a final stream of advice
and injunctions--where to stop, how to learn Italian, when to
use mosquito-nets, what pictures to look at. "Remember," he
concluded, "that it is only by going off the track that you
get to know the country. See the little towns--Gubbio,
Pienza, Cortona, San Gemignano, Monteriano. And don't, let
me beg you, go with that awful tourist idea that Italy's
only a museum of antiquities and art. Love and understand
the Italians, for the people are more marvellous than the land."

"How I wish you were coming, Philip," she said,
flattered at the unwonted notice her brother-in-law was
giving her.

"I wish I were." He could have managed it without great
difficulty, for his career at the Bar was not so intense as
to prevent occasional holidays. But his family disliked his
continual visits to the Continent, and he himself often
found pleasure in the idea that he was too busy to leave town.

"Good-bye, dear every one. What a whirl!" She caught
sight of her little daughter Irma, and felt that a touch of
maternal solemnity was required. "Good-bye, darling. Mind
you're always good, and do what Granny tells you."

She referred not to her own mother, but to her
mother-in-law, Mrs. Herriton, who hated the title of Granny.

Irma lifted a serious face to be kissed, and said
cautiously, "I'll do my best."

"She is sure to be good," said Mrs. Herriton, who was
standing pensively a little out of the hubbub. But Lilia
was already calling to Miss Abbott, a tall, grave, rather
nice-looking young lady who was conducting her adieus in a
more decorous manner on the platform.

"Caroline, my Caroline! Jump in, or your chaperon will
go off without you."

And Philip, whom the idea of Italy always intoxicated,
had started again, telling her of the supreme moments of her
coming journey--the Campanile of Airolo, which would burst on
her when she emerged from the St. Gothard tunnel, presaging
the future; the view of the Ticino and Lago Maggiore as the
train climbed the slopes of Monte Cenere; the view of
Lugano, the view of Como--Italy gathering thick around her
now--the arrival at her first resting-place, when, after long
driving through dark and dirty streets, she should at last
behold, amid the roar of trams and the glare of arc lamps,
the buttresses of the cathedral of Milan.

"Handkerchiefs and collars," screamed Harriet, "in my
inlaid box! I've lent you my inlaid box."

"Good old Harry!" She kissed every one again, and there
was a moment's silence. They all smiled steadily, excepting
Philip, who was choking in the fog, and old Mrs. Theobald,
who had begun to cry. Miss Abbott got into the carriage.
The guard himself shut the door, and told Lilia that she
would be all right. Then the train moved, and they all
moved with it a couple of steps, and waved their
handkerchiefs, and uttered cheerful little cries. At that
moment Mr. Kingcroft reappeared, carrying a footwarmer by
both ends, as if it was a tea-tray. He was sorry that he
was too late, and called out in a quivering voice,
"Good-bye, Mrs. Charles. May you enjoy yourself, and may
God bless you."

Lilia smiled and nodded, and then the absurd position of
the foot-warmer overcame her, and she began to laugh again.

"Oh, I am so sorry," she cried back, "but you do look so
funny. Oh, you all look so funny waving! Oh, pray!" And
laughing helplessly, she was carried out into the fog

“Why do you go away? So that you come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same ad never learning”.

Terry Pratchett, A hat full of sky (2004)

6. The author loves to recreate the atmosphere with his characters, with many details and words about people, things, location. He uses simple words also to describe the characters' emotions and feelings.

7. Philip loves Italy and he knows everything about this country. Italy is beautiful for its history, culture, arts, monuments, but also for nature and landscapes. The country is famous also for its food, wine, traditions. And is loved by everyone for its people, who are nice, warm with guests, always available.

8. They belong to an upper social class. Lilia travel to Italy in a first class carriage. Philip travelled to Italy often: he knows everything about it. So the family is rich.


Travelling opens the mind, opens the door to the awareness of new cultures, to the knowledge of new people. It is said that when one leaves on a journey, one never returns as one had left. And it's true. Because getting out of our comfort zone helps us get involved, to question ourselves, to discover a world outside our own. This can only enrich us, make us better than we started, because when we question ourselves we can only improve. And improve the world around us too. For this reason it is always good to conceive the journey with a sustainable approach. Where the word sustainable does not refer solely and exclusively to the low environmental impact that we must have when visiting new places in the world. But we must also have a sustainable approach from the social point of view, to bring development to the local population, without interfering with their culture and their ecosystem.

We must always start with an empty mind. To be able to fill it with all the beauties that the world can reserve for us. And we have to push the younger ones to leave, to leave their homes, to open up to the world. Because we are all citizens of the world. And they are the citizens of the world that will come tomorrow. Leaving for a journey, near or far, can help them understand that we are all different and all the same. Because the differences that exist between peoples are our true wealth. What makes the world a beautiful place to live. And where to travel.

Provided you leave with an open heart and mind. Because as Confucius used to say, Wherever you go, go with all your heart. While Hans Christian Andersen said: To travel is to live. And we love living for travel.

Eigentlich wollte Virginia Azañedo schnell Hilfe bekommen. Sie saß mit einer starken Erkältung beim Arzt, aber dieser interessierte sich erst einmal nicht für ihre Krankheit. „Nachdem ihm klar war, dass ich aus Spanien komme, hat er begeistert von seinem letzten Urlaub in Granada erzählt", sagt die 44-Jährige und lacht.

Azañedo weiß: Die Ärzte meinen es nett. Und natürlich ist auch irgendwann die Krankheit das Thema. Da fragt der Arzt dann nach Symptomen und der Art der Schmerzen. Sind diese zum Beispiel stechend, pochend oder ziehend? Weil Azañedo schon seit fast 20 Jahren in Deutschland lebt, hat sie keine Probleme, den Ärzten genau zu erklären, was ihr fehlt. „Ich habe aber auch einen Vorteil: Weil Spanisch eine romanische Sprache ist, verstehen die Ärzte viele Begriffe. Sie lernen ja die lateinischen Namen der Krankheiten", sagt sie. Schwierig wird es, wenn jemand überhaupt kein Deutsch spricht - und auch kein Englisch.

„Eine Mutter brachte ihr Kind zur Untersuchung und konnte absolut nicht mit uns kommunizieren", erzählt die Wiesbadener Kinderärztin Julia Salamon. ‚„Da steht man dann da und fragt sich: Hat es Bauchweh? Seit Tagen Fieber? Oder vielleicht Läuse?" Erst nach verschiedenen Untersuchungen war klar: Das Kind hatte wirklich ungebetene Gäste in seinen Haaren. Natürlich sind Läuse kein Notfall. Aber ein spätes Entdecken dieser Insekten kann - nicht nur für den Patienten selbst - sehr unangenehm sein. Deshalb rät Salamon, nicht ohne Vorbereitung zu einem Arzttermin zu gehen.

Besonders dann, wenn das Deutsch noch nicht ganz so gut ist. „Aber meistens kommen Menschen, die Deutsch nicht als Muttersprache haben, viel schneller zum Punkt", sagt die 37 Jährige. „Wahrscheinlich deshalb, weil sie sich sehr darauf konzentrieren, alles genau und richtig zu formulieren." Trotzdem kann es natürlich zu Missverständnissen kommen. Besonders dann, wenn sich Wörter fast gleich anhören, aber in der eigenen Sprache eine andere Bedeutung haben. „Infusión ist im Spanischen das Wort für Tee oder Aufguss", erklärt Virginia Azañedo und lacht. Heute weiß sie: Ihre Freunde sollten nicht gemütlich Tee trinken. Mit Infusion ist gemeint, dass Patienten eine medizinisch notwendige Flüssigkeit über die Vene langsam und kontinuierlich in den Körper bekommen.

Lesen Sie die Aussagen 1-3 durch und kreuzen Sie bei jeder Aufgabe die richtige Lösung an.

  1. Aus diesem Text geht hervor, dass
    A Ärzte viele Sprachen sprechen.
    B Ärzte bei Sprachproblemen Hilfe holen
    C ein Kind Läuse hatte.
    D Patienten beim Arzt Tee trinken.

  2. Laut Text können Irrtümer entstehen, weil
    A. Menschen nicht gut zuhören.
    B. Ärzte bei Visiten wenig Zeit haben.
    C. Wörter in Sprachen gleich klingen.
    D. Patienten vor Ärzten Angst haben.

  3. In diesem Text geht es um
    A. die Krankheitsgeschichte einer Frau.
    B. Patienten, die Englisch sprechen.
    C. sprachliche Schwierigkeiten bei Arztbesuchen.
    D. Kinder mit auffallenden Krankheiten.

Beantworten Sie nachstehende Fragen mit eigenen Worten. Bilden Sie dabei ganze Sätze.

4. Weshalb bereiten Virginia Azañedo Besuche beim Arzt wenig Probleme? Erklären Sie.

Virginia besucht den Arzt, spricht aber nur Spanisch. Glücklicherweise ist Spanisch eine romanische Sprache und die Ärzte verstehen sie, da die medizinischen und Krankheitsbegriffe vom Lateinischen abgeleitet sind. Zum Glück spricht Virginia auch ein bisschen Deutsch.

5. Welche Empfehlung erteilt Dr. Salamon den Patienten vor einem Arztbesuch?

Dr. Salamon bittet seine Patienten, zu dem vorbereiteten Termin zu gehen. Vor allem, wenn sie kein Deutsch können. Weil sie die Behandlung der Krankheit verzögern könnten.
