here’s a description of the lettorato work, and the written and oral exams & project work from the vademecum:
PER IL CORSO DI LAUREA MAGISTRALE IN COMUNICAZIONE INTERCULTURALE D’IMPRESA
II anno (Dott.ssa Elizabeth Ferguson, firstname.lastname@example.org)
The English 2 course is designed to help students take a closer look at the concept of intercultural communication and culture shock. During the course, students will be required to read and discuss two texts:
“Do Not Sleep, there are snakes” by Daniel Everett (any edition) and
“River Town” by Peter Hessler (any edition)
During class, we will be examining how a country’s history and geography affect people’s behaviour, through reading and video work regarding China, the Amazon Basin, South Africa, India, and other countries.
For the ORAL EXAM, students will be required to prepare a final project.: an intercultural training dossier. Students will be given the choice of working in teams to prepare a dossier on Australia or South Africa (using the books and films provided alongside their own research) or doing individual projects, in which case each student will be asked to use the information they have gleaned from “Do NOt Sleep There Are Snakes “ OR “River Town” to prepare a training manual designed to help prepare a new graduate for work either as an assistant to Dan Everettt in working with the Piraha tribe, or as an Italian language instructor who will be working at the Fuling Teacher’s College. Additional information regarding the types of information to include in the dossier can be found on the class blog. https://cidi2anno.wordpress.com/
WRITTEN EXAM: Students will be required to write an essay on an intercultural theme, using the information gained in their two years of intercultural studies. Students will find the two coursebooks and the information on the blog useful in developing their essay.
