Detailed Course Content

Through the study of some aspects of British and American culture and society, the course aims at acquiring an adequate capacity for translation and conversation in English. Particular attention will be given to issues such as political institutions, government, international relations, the economy and the media. Through the use of audiovisual learning material and role play activities, we intend to enhance the lexical skills and develop critical and analytical skills in a foreign language. The course also aims to gradually develop fundamental language skills (reading and comprehension of texts; listening; oral and written production). There will be a grammar review .
