Visiting scolar Tatiana Yanson

Tatiana Yanson, doctoral student at the University of Tver (Russia) is visiting our department from August 2021 to January 2022. She is researching on the topic "Communicative styles of tour guides in oral travel discourse". In her research, she investigates excursion discourse as a type of oral travel discourse whose typical communication situation is the contact excursion. The study is conducted in two languages, Russian and German, to investigate the communication styles of tour guides. The results will enable further comparative analyses of the communication styles of tour guides, which are preferred by German and Russian tourists and thus improve the effectiveness of communication in the tourism sector. The stay is supported by the DAAD.
