Программа дисциплины


This ESP course is designed for students majoring in Linguistics, Philology, and Culture Studies. The aim of this course is the development of basic professional communication competencies (receptive and productive language skills) in the field of language and culture. While mastering the course, special attention is paid to building the professional vocabulary related to culture studies and intercultural communication. These competences are necessary for mastering the disciplines of the English language curriculum. The course involves working with English-language texts to trace the key features of national pictures of the world, analyzing precedent texts, highlighting culturally specific features of different variants of the English language (British, American, Australian, Scottish, Welsh, Canadian, etc.), discussing cases of intercultural communication. The course is also aimed at developing speaking skills (through discussions, debates, presentations of individual and group projects) on relevant topics, such as the concept of culture, linguistic characteristics of different cultures, transcultural literary texts, and English as the language of globalization.
