Gourmet English (inglese dell’enogastronomia), al via un laboratorio

Gourmet English, inglese dell'enogastronomia

"Gourmet English – inglese dell’enogastronomia" è uno dei 2 nuovi “Ligucibario Labs” per l’impresa proposti da Ligucibario®, piattaforma di promo valorizzazione del Made in Liguria enogastronomico.

Durata 4 oppure 8 ore
Obiettivo Comunicare efficacemente l’enogastronomia presso la clientela anglofona, dal turista all’importatore di prodotti italiani, dal giornalista al tour operator
Destinatari Operatori di ristorazione, pubblici esercizi, artigianato agroalimentare (e aspiranti tali) ecc. che vogliano sentirsi a proprio agio con la clientela anglofona e/o “internazionalizzare” il proprio raggio d’azione e i prodotti, anche a fiere e workshop
Metodologia Approccio interattivo, condivisione di glossari e frasari tecnico-settoriali, esercitazioni pratiche, auto-casi concreti per il “pronto soccorso” linguistico… 
Il laboratorio prevede un max di 15 corsisti e parte al raggiungimento di tale numero. Si tiene presso sedi formative volta per volta identificate, onde agevolare la partecipazione.
Si possono concordare anche soluzioni individuali e per singola impresa (anche presso la sede dell’impresa).

A FOR ALPHA, B FOR BRAVO - Let's get spelling!

My name is Bond. James Bond
A tutti capita di doversi presentare...
English Phonetic Spelling.
Un grande classico, dico io... Un grande tormentone, sostengono i miei allievi, che spesso si sono sbizzarriti con versioni "alternative" (A for Arenzano, B for Bargagli, C for Ceranesi...) degne di Zelig.
Comunque la pensiate, l'ABC dell'inglese parte da qua.
Per fare pratica, iniziate con lo spelling del vostro nome e cognome, tenendo a mente
FOR alpha
b FOR bravo
ecc.
Quindi
My name is Marco - M for Mike, A for Alpha etc.
My name is Anna - A for Alpha, double N for November, etc.
