OVERVIEW

The course is divided in two parts. Students will follow practical French language lessons during the 1st semester (40 hours).  In the second semester, “Modulo teorico” lessons (36 hours) will concentrate on lexical, morphosyntaxical and phonetic difficulties for Italian speakers and speakers of other languages belonging to the class

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course, the student will acquire a written and oral command of the French language between level B1 and level B2 of the Common European Framework for Languages that will allow him to respond to tourism demand, including the ability to manipulate and process Texts of tourist communication. The four oral and written comprehension and production skills will be developed in parallel, with particular attention to the skills written in the second anniversary. In particular, in the theoretical module (36 hours), the course will deepen topics related to the textual typologies of tourist communication, developing in close collaboration with the 40-hour tutorials held by French native speakers. The analysis of authentic documentation relating to the tourism sector will be the basis of the didactic material.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The objectives are: 

- increase students' awareness of the analysis of the different text types in the field of tourism, with particular attention to written types (publicity, administrative, advertising speeches, etc.).

- use tourism-specific terminology in French and adapt communicative strategies to the various textual types.

- create and be able to consult tourist glossaries in several languages. 

- use the basic and specific linguistic structures of tourism in French.
