Learning outcomes

The course has as its general aim that of introducing the students to the understanding and the production of written texts in the tourist, economic, and commercial fields.

On successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

- distinguish between texts and pseudotexts;
- characterize and describe the seven standards of textuality and the three regulative principles in texts belonging to different text classes;
- characterize specialized texts on the basis of their lexical and syntactic features;
- describe the main features of argumentative texts;
- characterize the most important argumentative moves and rules in texts belonging to different text classes;
- analyze and present texts in the tourist, economic, and commercial fields.

Program

"Understanding popular texts in the tourist, economic, and commercial fields"

A text is not simply an extended structure of syntactic units such as words, groups, and clauses and textual units, a text is a communicative language event in a context that is marked by completion. Starting from this perspective some basic concepts of the classical argumentation theory and of text linguistics, such as the seven standards of textuality, (cohesion, coherence, intentionality, acceptability, informativity, situationality, intertextuality) and the three regulative principles (efficiency, effectiveness, appropriateness), will be introduced in the first part of the course. Furthermore some classifications of texts according to their function, and characteristic features of argumentative texts will be described in the first part of the course, whereas in the second part written texts in the economic, commercial, and tourist fields will be analyzed.

Students not attending the course should contact the Professor in a timely manner, in order to get a detailed explanation of the program and the materials to be transmitted before the exam.

Course language: German.

Examination Methods

The exam is written (two papers, i.e. ‘tesine’, each tesina 1/3 of the final grade, and oral, presentation 1/3 of the final grade). Since it is foreseen that during the course the students must analyze and present texts on subjects given by the Professor, the students who do not attend classes regularly must agree with the Professor on two texts to be analyzed (each tesina 1/3 of the final grade) and presented at the beginning of the oral exam (presentation 1/3 of the final grade). Students who do not attend classes regularly will also be examined with regard to the basic concepts of text linguistics.

Stage e tirocini

Nel piano didattico della laurea magistrale in Lingue per la comunicazione turistica e commerciale (LM38) è previsto un periodo di stage/project work (CFU 9).
 
Le attività di stage sono finalizzate a far acquisire allo studente una conoscenza diretta in settori di particolare utilità per l’inserimento nel mondo del lavoro e per l’acquisizione di abilità specifiche d’interesse professionale. Tali attività possono essere svolte in aziende nazionali ed estere che operano nel settore del turismo e che presentano sbocchi di mercato internazionali, accreditate presso l’Ateneo Veronese, nonché presso Enti della Pubblica Amministrazione, Laboratori e Centri di Servizi pubblici (sono da intendersi in questo novero anche i Centri di Servizio ed i Laboratori che fanno capo all’Ateneo). Tali attività possono svolgersi anche nel contesto di project work organizzati sotto la diretta responsabilità di un docente o di un esperto del settore incaricato dal Collegio Didattico.
I crediti maturati in seguito ad attività di stage saranno attribuiti secondo quanto disposto nel dettaglio dal “Regolamento d’Ateneo per il riconoscimento dei crediti maturati negli stage universitari” vigente.
Tutte le informazioni in merito agli stage sono reperibili al link https://www.univr.it/it/i-nostri-servizi/stage-e-tirocini.
