Aim of the course is to provide students with linguistic and communicative skills and competences in English as required for the B2 Level in the European Framework of Reference for Languages. By the end of the course, students will have reached and consolidated the above level.
In agreement with the formative objectives of the higher degree course in Food and Nutrition Sciences, the expected acquisitional achievements can be also declined according to the following Dublin Descriptors Learning Outcomes:
1) Knowledge and understanding. The course will provide the advanced structures of the English language (see syllabus) with special attention to syntax and to language use both for what concern the passive skills (reading and listening) as well as the active skills (speaking and writing). Students will be made aware of the contexts and functions appropriate for the use of the language structures introduced, to favour recognition and comprehension.
2) Applying knowledge and understanding. In order to communicate successfully in the contexts associated to the B2 Level, students will take part in simulations of real contexts of communication and role plays.
3) Making judgements. Students will be involved in group activities that require different degrees of autonomy in decision-making, depending on the learning context provided. In order to do so, they will have to decode the communicative context and the information associated to the activity, and to interact and negotiate successfully with the other group members.
4) Communication skills. Students will be involved in class activities where they will be called to play communicative roles appropriate to the contexts of the B2 Level.
5) Learning skills. Both the theoretical lessons and the tutorial activities will provide the students with learning skills that will be useful for their future academic and professional career.
