Lo scopo di questo blog è quello di interpretare le esigenze degli studenti di giurisprudenza che si avviano allo studio del "Legal English".
Nello specifico, familiarizzare con le diverse tipologie di documenti legali, nonchè analizzare le peculiarità del linguaggio giuridico inglese.
Ci saranno attività di ascolto, lettura e comprensione, progetti di glossari per area di studio, batterie di esercizi per rinforzare il lessico specialistico e migliorare le strutture grammaticali.
