This course continues to develop students' communication competence in Italian through practice in the recognition, analysis and production - especially written - of formal registers and structures of the language. The course also outlines Italian linguistics history, Italy's dialects and today's neo-standard Italian. Texts will be studied in relation to their socio-cultural, historical and genre framework within thematic areas of inquiry. The course aims to refine students' analytical skills as well as their imaginative writing ability.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  1. Analyse different ways of beginning an imaginative text.
  2. Summarise the content of a text to convey the core qualities of a text.
  3. Identify the structural patterns (e.g., grammar, lexicon, vocabulary) of a text, as well as the ‘invisible culture' or hidden meanings within words and grammatical structures.
  4. Analyse and critique different types and versions of Italian text so that you can discuss how socio-historical and linguistic context influences our perspective on Italian society.
  5. Identify the individual voice of the author or director of a text and explain how this impacts on your own experience of the text.
  6. Construct imaginative or creative texts of your own, both individually and collectively.
