The aim of this course is to deepen and build upon the introductory grounding in Italian that students have gained by completing their first year of Italian, or equivalent. Audiovisual material and computer aided language teaching are incorporated into the classroom, and the course includes study of cultural texts to further students' linguistic and cultural learning. 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 study of Italian culture and society. The assessment is designed to optimise learning through tasks that presume a holistic conception of language and culture learning.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- understand a range of short written, aural and visual texts, on linguistic and cultural aspects of Italian history, society, and everyday life;
- converse spontaneously on familiar topics;
- produce brief, fluent and accurate oral and written texts, describing experiences, and expressing their critical opinion on events, people and texts;
- demonstrate increasingly broad expertise in critical thinking by extracting, synthesising and analysing information from a variety of cultural texts and communicating their own reactions, opinions and arguments.
