Description
Aim 

Having successfully completed the course, the student will be able 
1. to communicate in more complex situations, as such encountered when studying or working in Italy 
2. to read and understand different types of texts in Italian 
3. to understand and use more complex sentence structures 
4. to understand important features of Italian culture and everyday life
5. to achieve the level A2 of the CEFR (the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

 
Contents 

The focus of this course will be both on spoken communication and on reading comprehension. During the lessons, we will practice more complex sentence structures both by reading and analyzing different texts and by using oral exercises and small games. The thematic focus of the course will be on communicative situations that can be encountered when studying or working in Italy (e.g. a doctor’s appointment, renting an apartment, job search and job interviews, going to the bank, university life).

Students who are going (or are planning to go) on exchange to Italy are especially welcome to suggest any topics or contents that they would like to deal with in the course, in order to help them prepare for their studies in an Italian university.
