The course "Text Interpetation" is targeted at undergraduate students majoring in  "Linquistics. Intercultural Communication" (035700 ), Institute of the Arts, NSU,  and studying the English language.

The aim of the course is to develop the skills of decoding the message of the author of the fictional text, interpreting the main idea and the theme, recognising the main stylistic tools foregrounding ideas of the author.

At the end of the course students are supposed to be able to analyse a fictional text and speak about its linguistic peculiarities on their own, to recognise the historical epoch in which the text was created, to use the knowledge of the basic stylistic devices during the analysis of the text.
