This course includes:

  • 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) E RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO

      This course aims to

      • provide an accessible and interdisciplinary introduction to language and language variation in intercultural communication;
      • provide students with the basic tools to understand how cultural context affects the use and (mis)interpretation of language;
      • enable students to explain and analyse the power of texts and uncover their deep-seated ideologies.
      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") focuses on language and language variation in intercultural communication, and introduces Stylistics and Critical Discourse Analysis as tools to analyse texts. The practical language module (with Colin Rice) 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 '2017-18 Rules & Regulations, Lettorati list, etc.' folder (in the "documenti" folder on Prof. Cristiano Broccias’s page on the Lingue website) from September.
