Il corso è mirato a raggiungere il livello B1 del Quadro di Riferimento Comune Europeo (CEFR), a questo livello si richiede fluidità, accuratezza, e naturalezza nell’uso della lingua. Una volta acquisiti la grammatica ed il lessico di livello A2, si lavora principalmente sulla consapevolezza e l’efficacia linguistica tanto nelle produzioni orali che in quelle scritte. Oltre a saper parlare di routine e altri argomenti familiari studiati a livello elementare/pre-intermedio, cominceremo a confrontarci con temi astratti riguardanti idee, aspettative, opinioni, eventi attuali, relazioni interpersonali, argomentando e scegliendo il vocabolario appropriato.
