Obiettivi Formativi

The course aims at bringing students to realize the complex aspects of verbal interaction through the analysis of various conversation strategies. The concepts of speech acts, politeness strategies, implicature etc. will be dealt with from a theoretical standpoint and checked through examples during classes. The course will also bring students to understand the factors involved in intercultural communication. The major purpose is to help students improve their awareness of the implications of social encounters, and also to offer them tools to analyse various type texts, towards a proficient use of L2.
The course will be held in English
