Notes
Attending Lessons – If you can’t attend lessons speak to one of the teachers and we can indicate the
correct programme for you to study. If you miss a lesson find out from other students what we have
done and study it. Try to participate actively in the lessons.
Organize your time and organize your learning. Organized notes are easier to refer to and to revise
from. Beyond the book you are asked to read it is your responsibility to find more things to read:
English newspapers, magazines etc. are good sources of short articles.
We will also organize conversation groups with American students from the University of
California who are doing a year abroad in Rome. This is an excellent opportunity to speak with
native speakers.
The Internet is a fabulous resource for both listening and reading material, so use it! I strongly
recommend this site, particularly for listening:

Exams:
Non Frequentanti or "Full" exam
The exam lasts 3 hours and is based on your general knowledge of English. The level is
Intermediate. The exam is mostly composed of different types of grammar exercises but also
contains a short composition.
You can do the FULL exam (written and oral) in June 2014, or September 2014 or January 2015.
Frequentanti "esoneri"
2. You can do the exam in 2 parts, PART 1 written at the end of the first semester and PART 2
written (+ the oral) at the end of the second semester. If you do not pass PART 1 at the end of the
first semester (or if you do not want to accept the mark) you do not do PART 2 at the end of the
second semester. You have to do the FULL EXAM. The content of the exams is the same (although
the two-parts option has slightly more grammar). Prior to the exams we will do exam practice in
class.
Oral exam
Students who pass the written exam have the opportunity to improve their mark by up to another 5
marks.
D.A.S.S. students should prepare a presentation about a film director or a playwright and also bring
at least 7 pages from a screenplay or theatre play, which they have studied carefully. Students
should be able to talk about the piece they have selected and be prepared to answer questions
pertaining to the material.

Lingua Inglese per le Professioni Turistiche
PROGRAMME
The course aims to improve students’ listening, speaking, reading and writing skills to B1+ level.
The course is based on English for International Tourism by Peter Strutt (Pearson) which is
designed to meet the English language needs of students of tourism. It contains a variety of
industry- based texts, basic tourism concepts, practice of language skills and vocabulary needed in
tourism, and will enable students to: develop language awareness; acquire specialized tourism
terminology and build confidence in the professional skills needed for the tourist industry.
Students should aim to attend at least 75% of the lessons and be prepared to do at least 2 hours selfstudy for every hour in class. ‘Frequentanti’ will do an ‘esonero’ written exam in-class at the end of
the course (May).

MICHAEL RIDDELL
ALTRI CORSI DI LAUREA TRIENNALI (tranne DASS e TURISMO) E MAGISTRALI
The course aims to improve students’ reading skills in English by concentrating on the grammatical,
syntactical and lexical aspects of written texts. Texts are analysed in detail so that students are made
aware of the strategies necessary to follow their intrinsic grammatical and lexical patterns.
The course is in two parts: the first concentrates on the recognition of grammatical structures, and
specific aspects of the lexical system, such as locutions, collocations and compounds, and how to
infer unknown lexical items from context. The second part deals with the specific strategies needed
to decipher continuous text, including studies of the various transition signals and cohesive devices
that enable a reader to follow the internal logic of the text; other aspects such as register and
stylistic features will also be examined.
The lessons are in English, and the course assumes at least a pre-intermediate level of competence
on the part of the student, especially in reading, and attendance is strongly recommended. At the
end of the course a student should be able to use the skills obtained to understand without excessive
difficulty texts in English relevant to his or her course of study. There will be a written examination
based on reading comprehension at the end of the course.
Bibliography
Halfway through the course and at the end, a series of specific handouts including the class notes,
reading materials and texts with exercises will be made available. Non-attending students will
follow a slightly different programme, partially based on a prescribed text-book (details to follow).
