Learning outcomes

This course is aimed to illustrate the development and diversification of the English language in English varieties. It is also intended to shed light on the factors that determined the emergence of Englishes.

Program

“World Englishes: the spread of English around the globe”
This course is aimed to investigate the global spread of the English language with a focus on the notions of linguistic variation and standard language. To steer through the manifold facets of the English language, we will first of all discuss some of the attempts to categorize different varieties of English. We will also question the concept of native speaker and provide a possible synthesis of classification. Having set the theoretical frame, we will then explore linguistic and socio-historical characteristics of different varieties among the following main types:
- Dialects of English on the British Isles and in the USA
- Major contact varieties (English based Pidgin and Creole languages, contact between English and minority languages)
- Varieties of English as a second language and official language (e.g. Indian English, Singapore English, etc.)
- English as a global voice

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.
