C1+ level in English (Common European Framework)
On a metalinguistic level, the educational goals of this module are focussed on the acquisition of a critical knowledge of the role of English in tourist communication. They also are focussed on the study of the English language at a C1+ level of the Common European Framework. The educational goals are also coherent with those of the international MA in Planning and Management of Tourism Systems where this module is held (with reference to AREA no. 10), which deals with the discourse of tourism in a global context. At last, they are coherent with the AVA requirements for the L-LIN/12 sector, since they are focussed on the study of those aspects of the English language in such specialised contexts as the tourism industry.
The main features of English tourism discourse specialised, promotional and digital contexts (supply and demand, planning and management) will be analysed in authentic texts. Students will also create their own texts in workshops.
