This course is designed for students who have at least the equivalent of one semester of college-level Italian. The primary aim of the course is to develop the four basic language skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) through communicative, collaborative and cultural activities.

The course combines several integrated approaches aimed at improving Italian language skills beyond the basic level. Classroom time is devoted mainly to speaking and practicing Italian through a combination of group-based and individual activities, focusing on grammatical structures, language functions and vocabulary. Sessions also address a range of contemporary cultural themes using newspaper articles, advertising material and short film clips. In addition, on-site activities such as visits to markets and coffee-bars will give students a unique chance to rapidly implement their linguistic development and newly acquired intercultural competences.

Extra-curricular activities, such as public lectures or film nights organized by various local institutions, will be announced at the start of the semester to foster the knowledge of Italy and the Italians, and develop sensitivity towards cultural differences.

By the end of the course, students are expected to master basic grammar and lexical structures, so that they will be able to conduct a simple conversation and to write short and basic texts with some degree of competency. Students will be able to speak about themselves and their family, to introduce people, to interact with the host community and to follow short and simple conversations.

Prior to Spring 2023 the course code was ITA112.
