PRESENTAZIONE

This module includes an introduction to Modern English (from Early Modern English to English as a Lingua Franca) and a practical English language course at the C2.1 level.

OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

L’insegnamento si propone di approfondire lo studio teorico della lingua e della linguistica inglese con particolare riferimento agli aspetti sociali, funzionali e cognitivi e di sviluppare la competenza linguistica al livello C2 del "Quadro Comune Europeo di Riferimento per la conoscenza delle Lingue".

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI (DETTAGLIO)

This module aims to

- provide students with a basic knowledge of the history of English from Early Modern English to Present-day English;

- provide students with a basic knowledge of some of the worldwide varieties of English (i.e. so-called 'Englishes');

- enable students to discuss the role of English as a Lingua Franca (vs. English as a Foreign Language).

Modalità didattiche

The linguistics module is made up of weekly lectures (3 hours a week over 10 weeks in the second semester).

The practical module is made up of weekly classes (4 hours a week over 20 weeks, i.e. 10 weeks per semester).

PROGRAMMA/CONTENUTO

English Language II (LM) is divided into two parts, a one-semester linguistics module ("modulo teorico") and a two-semester practical module ("modulo pratico" or "esercitazioni" o "lettorato").

The linguistics module ("modulo teorico") is an introduction to the History of English from Early Modern English to English as a Lingua Franca. The practical language module aims to bring students to the C2.1 (upper end of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages C1 level). More information about the practical part will be available in the "2016-17 Rules & Regulations, Lettorati list, etc." folder (in the "documenti" folder on Prof. Broccias’s page on the Lingue website) from September.
