Italian

Students will learn theories and techniques for activating pragmatic skills at school levels and will be able to

- use some scientific research methods and present the results adequately.
- apply theoretical knowledge for planning didactic activities.

 

Why do specific attitudes by foreign speakers appear clumsy or overly formal? Why is it difficult to understand the irony in an L2? Can foreign language didactics be helpful in these kinds of situations? What levels of pragmatic skills are required of an L2 learner?

 

These and other questions will be discussed in the course. "Teaching pragmatics in Italian as L2".
During the course, theories such as the speech act theory (Austin, 1976) and concepts such as the implicatures (Grice, 1975), the politeness (Brown & Levinson, 2002), the intercultural pragmatics (Bettoni, 2006), the relationship between pragmatics and the CEF (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), and the latest developments in teaching pragmatics (Nuzzo, 2013; Nuzzo & Gauci, 2012; Santoro & Vedder, 2016) will be addressed.

 

Through practical research, the course will address in-depth the teaching of writing skills in digital formats such as the email and the messages in WhatsApp (Brocca, submitted).
