Prerequisites

C1+ level in English (Common European Framework)

Educational goals

On a metalinguistic level, the educational goals of this module are focussed on the acquisition of critical knowledge of the role of English in tourist communication. They also are focussed on the study of the English language at a C1+ level of the Common European Framework. The educational goals are also coherent with those of the international MA in Planning and Management of Tourism Systems where this module is held (with reference to AREA 10), which deals with the discourse of tourism in a global context. At last, they are coherent with the AVA requirements for the L-LIN/12 sector, since they are focussed on the study of those aspects of the English language in the specialised contexts of the tourism industry and in the communication of sustainable tourism.

Course content

The main features of English tourism discourse in specialised, promotional and digital contexts (supply and demand, planning and management) and from a sustainability perspective will be analysed in authentic texts. Students will also create their own texts in workshops and will carry out a corpus linguistics analysis

Teaching methods

The course will be based on flipped classes focussing on textual analysis with the use of corpora and corpus linguistics tools; students will be encouraged to suggest topics for further analysis. Students will also be invited to attend the language practice sessions planned within the weekly schedule for their level of competence, and any tutoring activities on offer throughout the year by Centro Competenza Lingue.

Assessment and Evaluation

The exam comprises the following:
(A) Written test (BEC) on pc.
The pass level is 60%.
The mark of the pc test is valid for 18 months.
(B) written assignments and workshops carried out during the module
Grading will take into consideration the marks obtained in the BEC and the written assignments.
