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. At the same time, students will be introduced to aspects of Italian culture and society.
Each week, we aim for one of your language classes to be 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 study, giving you the opportunity to complete computer-based exercises.
Beginner modules usually have four classes per week.
