Informazioni sull'evento

Let's talk about Conversation

We take informal conversation for granted because it's so natural and everyday; but if we analyse it we can discover surprising features. The talk explores some of the findings reported in David Crystal's 2020 book, Let's Talk: How English Conversation Works, and compares face-to-face conversations with the online interactions that have become increasingly present as a result of covid-19.

A conclusione i docenti riceveranno un attestato di partecipazione ai fine dei crediti formativi.
