Learning outcomes

The course aims at focusing on the main principles of pragmatics, with specific reference to speech acts, and the leading role that it plays in authentic communicative exchanges as well as in business English and English for Tourism. Theoretical framework will be supported by single cases taken from written and oral passages. Extracts from promotional tools, such as brochures, leaflets and Internet marketing through websites, will be analysed from a linguistic point of view, specifically connected to pragmatics.
Frontal teaching with class activities and practice will be included during lessons.
At the end of the course, students will be asked to share their knowledge of the main pragmatic theories and of the language of tourism, analysing promotional materials too.

Program

The programme will explore the following aspects:
- Introduction to the concept of pragmatics
- Intercultural pragmatics
- English varieties
- Socio-cultural and situational context
- Cooperative principle
- Politeness
- Speech acts
- Communicative strategies
- Persuasive language
- ESP/ English for Tourism

The present list will be constantly updated. The final version will be available at the end of the course. Materials used during the lessons (slides) will be made available on the Moodle Platform.
The contents of the exam are the same for attending and non-attending students.
Students who are not able to attend lessons are invited to contact the instructor to obtain the password to access the Moodle area.
