- Ability to make adequate translation choices on simple sentences
- Ability to make appropriate lexical, syntactical, morphological, inflected choices in the construction of the sentence in English.

2nd practical skills:
- follow the lectures in English, adequately inferring the theoretical knowledge and interacting in the situation with peers and superiors
- take notes in English
- write a short text on a cultural topic (private interests, sports, hobbies, etc.) correctly, using non-trivial terms and linguistic constructions.
- recognize the main parametric differences between English and Italian
- analyze one's own competence in order to avoid errors of linguistic interference

3) Assessable competences based on the written verification
- B2 communication skills;
- Competences in comparative analysis of basic linguistic structures
- Basic argumentative skills in English.

Based on the skills and competences described above, the student is expected to
- is able to consolidate the acquisition of the English language at level B2
- is able to recognize also structures of the language not addressed in the classroom and to make assumptions of analysis expressed correctly.

Dublin descriptors (general descriptions of the desired results)
i) Knowledge and understanding in a field of post-secondary-level studies, which includes basic topics in the field of linguistic analysis of the English language, as attested by the bibliography adopted;
ii) Knowledge and applied understanding: for example, trying to solve motivate incorrect productions in the foreign language through the parametric distinction between the two languages;
iii) Autonomy of judgment: the ability to draw on lexical and syntactical information from dictionaries and reference texts;
iv) Communication skills: knowing how to communicate information in English, using the appropriate vocabulary and syntactic structures for everyday situations of any degree of complexity;
v) Ability to learn: through explicit instruction and exposure to the language both in the classroom and in contexts prepared independently (interaction with visiting students in English; listening to complex texts on media, etc.).
