The course emphasises oral communication and presents idiomatic language functionally within the framework of Italian culture and students' personal interests. The topics for reading focus on everyday life and the contemporary Italian social and cultural scene, the objective of which is to inform students about present day Italian life and to elicit lively discussion.
What will it be like
The emphasis is on communication activities which promote proficiency in Italian (e.g. group discussions, simple verbal exchanges, role-plays, listening comprehension exercises) designed to give students of Italian the opportunity to speak the language freely, using the structures they have already learnt. Each activity lasts between 20 and 40 minutes, during which students should not worry about making mistakes as this is part of the learning process. Having a dictionary at hand would be a help and students are encouraged to ask the tutor for advice. At times, a written follow-up is suggested where the students are given a written exercise based on the activity and where they will try and make the language as accurate as possible.
What else do you need to buy or do
Note book and ring binder to keep your notes.
