OVERVIEW

Second-year English language teaching is annual in duration. In the first semester it consists of the lectorate (language exercises), through which students and female students acquire and consolidate language knowledge to reach level B2 Common European Framework for Languages. In the second semester, teaching consists of the theoretical module in which students and female students acquire peculiar aspects of tourist language and analyze it in real contexts.

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)
