Learning objectives
The course aims to present the main features of English from both a theoretical and an applied perspective. In particular, the course will introduce practical notions in English phonetics, phonology and morphology and word formation strategies. It will then focus on developing students' critical listening and reading skills, as well as their grammar knowledge. The suggested entry level is the B1 level of the CEFR. A working knowledge of Italian is also required. The exit level is set at the B2 level of the CEFR.
Expected learning outcomes
By the end of the course students will have reached B2-level competences in English and will be able to master all the fundamental skills (especially listening and reading). They will be familiar with intermediate (B2) level English grammar, in particular verb tenses. They will be able to discuss non-specialised subjects in English.
