This course continues the probing review of the Italian language begun in ITAL2005. Use is made of different media including audiovisual material and computer aided language teaching. The course integrates music and literature to further the linguistic and cultural learning objectives of the unit. Active language production is encouraged in classroom situations such as role playing, structured conversations and reading and writing activities. Class time is divided between interactive language work, linguistic reflection and Italian culture and society.
The assessment is designed to optimise learning through tasks that presume a holistic conception of language and culture learning.
