AIMS AND CONTENT
The aim of the module is to introduce students to the study of the English language (phonology, morphology, syntax, vocabulary, semantics) as the expression of both a homogeneous culture and a lingua franca of international communication. At the end of the course students will be able to critically read and analyze texts, especially in the sphere of current affairs in order to discuss them with their peers
AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES
The course aims at achieving not only a linguistic but also a cultural understanding of the proposed contents that will allow their use in relation to the chosen course of study to which they are linked thanks to the contextualisation of linguistic phenomena in the contemporary world, with particular attention to political and diplomatic language. Through language, reflection on the social and political realities of the various areas of study will be stimulated in order to provide the tools for reading the international context to which they refer in a continuous comparison with the Italian, European and non-European reality. The level of competence attained in the three-year degree will allow, at the end of the module and after passing the exam, to know the main features of political and diplomatic discourse in stylistic, rhetorical and lexical terms and to be able to engage in discussions and debates in English on topics that imply knowledge of a vocabulary of the field
Expected level of output equivalent to at least B2 of the CEFR
Entry test managed by the University or level B1 certification among those recognized by the University
The module lasts one year and includes lectures and language activities (esercitazioni linguistiche)
The module introduces students to the language of politics and diplomacy through a theoretical-methodological part followed by the analysis of texts. The teaching will be supported by linguistic exercises aimed at achieving level B2 language skills
