    CONTENT AND GOALS

    The course aims to provide the oral and written English skills necessary to meet the demand in the cultural tourism sector.

    DIGITAL AWARENESS – A prerequiste for online branding (and everyday life)

    CONTENT AND GOALS

    The first-year theoretical module will provide basic notions of communication pragmatics, discourse & multimedia communication analysis, online safety, and data research and interpretation. This course aims at providing the theoretical and methodological tools necessary to understand the Internet and navigate online in an informed manner, an essential prerequisite for working efficiently and responsibly in promoting brands and events.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course aims to provide written and oral mastery of the English language to answer the demand in the field of cultural tourism, including the ability to understand specific pre-intermediate texts.
    The aim of the course is to bring students to a level of mastery of English at B1 level of the Common European Framework for Languages. 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, the theoretical module (36 hours) will address the pragmatic communication. The interpersonal and cultural aspects of 'tourism' communication will be enhanced in order to improve the communicative competence of learners in the domain of study.
    The tutorials held by native speakers will focus on the development of lexical, morphosyntactic and phonetic skills. Since the course will start from a pre-intermediate level, depending on the results obtained in the entrance test that will be run at the beginning of the course, the main goal is to consolidate the basic knowledge of the code so as to allow for more accurate performance in the four Ability (reading, writing, listening and speaking).
