The course consists of two main strands. It will be held in person.
The first of these ('lettorato') is held throughout the year and is aimed at developing critical reading and writing skills at around the C1 level of the CEFR. The course is taught by Dr McQuillan (surnames of students beginning A-L) and Dr Bleasdale (surnames of students beginning M-Z). Lessons begin in the first week of the first semester and you should check their webpages for times and rooms, and for information about the set texts.
The second strand ('module') is held during the second semester by myself (group A-L) and Prof. Riggs (M-Z). The theme of the module is 'aspects of English today', and offers students the chance to research and present on a wide range of topics such as world Englishes, the expanding lexicon, the language of literature, and English as a lingua franca. More information about the module will be made available on the course moodle which will be opened before the beginning of the second semester.
