ITAL100: Part I Italian Studies (Beginners to CEFR: A2)

Year 1

This module is designed for students having little or no knowledge of the Italian language. Consequently, a substantial part of the module is devoted to intensive language teaching aimed at making the student proficient in both written and spoken Italian. Within the language seminars, students will be introduced to aspects of Italian culture.

There are four language classes per week, one of which is entirely devoted to the acquisition and development of oral skills. Tutorials are based on a textbook and emphasis is placed on the acquisition of vocabulary and a firm grasp of Italian grammatical structures. There is also one independent language hour, dedicated to computer-based exercises.
