Contents
THE COURSE SYLLABUS IS DIVIDED INTO MACRO-TOPICS RELATING TO ENGLISH IN THE WORLD, WITH PARTICULAR REGARD TO INTERACTION WITH OTHER FIELDS OF STUDY, FOR EXAMPLE, INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION; LANGUAGE AND SOCIAL MEDIA; TRADITIONAL LANGUAGE AND MEDIA; LANGUAGE FOR SPECIAL PURPOSES.
THE MACRO-TOPICS WILL BE STUDIED THROUGH THE STRATEGIES OF RE-ELABORATION AND SYNTHESIS OF THE CONTENTS IN ORDER TO FACILITATE THE ACQUISITION OF A SERIES OF FUNDAMENTAL LINGUISTIC ABILITIES TO CONTINUE THE STUDY OF THE LANGUAGE IN OTHER FIELDS OF STUDY.
THE COURSE, STARTING FROM THE CULTURAL CONTENTS CONCERNING TEACHING, WILL HIGHLIGHT AND TREAT THE USE OF THE LANGUAGE IN ITS FUNCTIONAL, GRAMMATICAL AND PHONETIC CHARACTERISTICS.
Teaching Methods
THE COURSE WILL FOLLOW A COMMUNICATIVE APPROACH, WITH A "STUDENT-CENTRED" METHODOLOGY IN WHICH THE STUDENT IS THE CENTRE OF THE LEARNING PROCESS. A "NEEDS ASSESSMENT" WILL KNOW THE STUDENTS BETTER AND BECOME AWARE OF THEIR NEEDS, NEEDS, INTERESTS, AND PREFERENCES. THE PROPOSED TOPICS WILL PRESENT THE LANGUAGE STRUCTURES AND FUNCTIONS IN REAL SITUATIONS. AFTER AN INITIAL FRONTAL PRESENTATION, STUDENTS ARE INVOLVED IN ACTIVITIES OF "BRAINSTORMING", "PAIR-WORK", "GROUP-WORK", "PROBLEM-SOLVING" AND "DISCOVERY EXERCISES". THEY WILL BE INVOLVED IN SPONTANEOUS COMMUNICATION ACTIVITIES, IN PARTICULAR, DIALOGUES, MONOLOGUES, QUESTIONNAIRES, IMAGE DESCRIPTIONS, LISTENING TESTS, READINGS AND QUESTIONNAIRES, "CLOZE-TEST" AND "FILL-IN-THE-GAPS", COMPLETING TABLES AND GRAMMATICAL EXERCISES AIMED AT REACHING A FORMAL CORRECTNESS.
THE COURSE WILL BEGIN WITH THE PROGRESSIVE STUDY OF GRAMMAR AND VOCABULARY, WHICH WILL BE ASSOCIATED WITH A VARIETY OF READING, WRITING, HOMEWORK, LISTENING AND SPEAKING EXERCISES. THE PROGRAM WILL INTRODUCE STUDY SKILLS OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND INCLUDE SPECIFIC VOCABULARY. FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE COURSE, STUDENTS WILL BE ENCOURAGED TO COMMUNICATE IN ENGLISH. AFTER COMPLETING THIS MODULE, STUDENTS WILL ALSO BE ENCOURAGED TO SUPPORT A SHORT PRESENTATION (INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP) IN ENGLISH. THE TOPICS FOR THE PRESENTATION WILL BE DECIDED DURING THE COURSE OF THE MODULE.
