Teaching Italian as a foreign language: the educational use of economic texts
The present paper tries to emphasize how to learn the Italian language and culture through technical texts, with special emphasis on the texts of the economy. The use of authentic materials such as special purpose languages, in our case the language of economics, during the lessons of Italian, has proven to be a good method for language acquisition. As the basis of our work, we have chosen the vocabulary of economic language, even though the list of terms used particularly in a field are also present in the common language. We have developed a teaching unit dedicated to business students who have a B1-B2 proficiency level. Starting from a banking-financial text, our lesson takes into consideration, through various exercises, morphological and syntactic aspects, as well as the vocabulary of finance and economics.
