I have been asked to provide a proposal for a course on the English of Tourism and tourism discourse aiming to develope both knowledge of inguistic concepts and the language skills of the students. I did not find much which brings together the theoretical level and the more practical level. I found this book by a researcher of the University of Pisa published not long ago, sometime this 2006.
Sun, Sea, Sex and the Unspoilt Countryside. How the English language makes tourists out of readers
, by Gloria Cappelli, here's the link:
I was wondering whether somebody knew this book, and whether this could be a good choice for undergraduate students. It seems to meet most of my requirements, so, before ordering it, I wanted to hear some comments.
Thank you in advance.
PS: A reference to a journal with a review of the book would be equally helpful. Thank you.
