OVERVIEW

The course is organized in two parts: practical exercices (first semester, 40 hours) and a metalinguistic reflection module (2nd semester, 36 hours) on tourism terminology.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course, the student will acquire basic written and oral skills (between Level A2 and Level B1 of the Common European Language Framework) of the French language to answer the demand in the tourism sector, including the ability to understand simple Specific texts. The four oral and written comprehension and production skills will be developed in parallel, with particular attention to oral skills in the first year. In particular, in the theoretical module (36 hours), the course will deepen the aspects related to the development of lexical, morphosynthetic and phonetic skills more problematic for the Italian learners and will deepen themes related to the digital aspects of the tourism market, developing in parallel with the exercises (40 hours), held by French native speakers. The analysis of authentic documentation relating to the tourism sector will be the basis of the didactic material.

- will know how to write short texts relating to the personal and tourist spheres correctly

- will master the basic morphosyntactic structures of the French language

- can converse on general and specialised topics with good formal correctness

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Part I: practial exercices (40 hours– 1st semester)

Part II: metalinguistic reflection (36 hours– 2nd semester)

Basic morphosyntactic arguments of the French language (check detailed programme on aulaweb)

Part II: Metalinguistic reflection (36 hours - 2nd semester): tourist itineraries: vocabulary, structure, text types. 

The theoretical module (36 hours - 2nd semester) will examine in depth the aspects relating to the development of the lexical, morphosyntactic and phonetic skills most problematic for Italian-speaking learners, developing after the exercises (40 hours - 1st semester), held by native French-speaking experts.

The entire course will follow a progression and focus on situations and problems typical of the tourist sector, with particular attention to the response to tourist demand in French. In particular, different types of communication will be gradually addressed, such as oral interaction, telephone communication, telematic communication, comprehension and production of short and simple written texts and digital hypertexts.

The analysis of authentic documentation relating to the tourism sector will form the basis of the teaching material.
