English grammar for Person & Family

Questo corso ha l’obiettivo di affrontare argomenti relativi alla persona e alla famiglia, nonché delle regole grammaticali e sintattiche a complemento dell’argomento oggetto di studio. In particolare, questo corso è diviso in 4 sections: persona e famiglia, la morfologia, scienza e tecnologia, attualità e mass media. All’interno di ogni Section gli obiettivi sono i seguenti: saper comprendere e riconoscere gli argomenti oggetti di studio (siano essi relativi alla terminologia, alle regole grammaticali, a letture o attività di ascolto); applicare ciò a cui si è stati esposti sotto forma di frasi, brevi elaborati o attività di vario genere. Sono previsti webinar in cui il docente incontrerà gli studenti in streaming. Questo corso è il quarto del Pathway "B2-English Language level training" previsto nel Master di I livello in “Innovazione didattica e CLIL” organizzato dall’Università di Foggia.
