    The linguistics module ("modulo teorico") is an introduction to the History of English. The practical language module aims to bring students to the C1.2 (upper end of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages C1 level). More information about the practical part will be available on Prof. Broccias’s page on the Lingue website from September.
