Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide students with the necessary linguistic instruments to comprehend and re-elaborate texts connected to their studies. Particular reference is given to written abilities (comprehension and production).
The course provides for the acquisition of knowledgeability and competencies as established by the B1 Level of International Linguistic Certification. 

At the end of the course, the student will be able to read and decode documents in English characterized by the speciality lexicon of Motor, Sports and Health Sciences, take short interviews in a foreign language, request information and respond to requests for information at an intermediate level ( level B1 of the European Reference Framework) independently and in a specialized and non-specialized context by developing theoretical knowledge through the analysis of the main structures of the English sentence in comparative perspective with Italian and other languages studied in the degree course and practical knowledge, (i.e. identifying the main differences between structures in their language and English; providing adequate translation choices in simple sentences; delivering appropriate lexical, syntactical, morphological, and inflected choices in constructing sentences in English.

 Based on the skills and competencies described above, the student 
- can consolidate the acquisition of the English language at level B1
- can also recognize structures of the language not addressed in the classroom and make assumptions of analysis expressed correctly.
