Having successfully completed the course, the student
1) can read and understand fairly long and complex texts in Italian
2) is familiar with the most common reading strategies and can apply them when reading a text
3) is familiar with different text types and their most important features
4) achieves reading comprehension skills at level B1 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).


The main objective of the course is to develop your reading comprehension skills in Italian, so that you will be able to read a broader variety of texts autonomously. During the course, we will read, analyze and discuss different types of texts, e.g. newspaper articles, simple literary texts, blog entries, and informative texts dealing with topics of Italian culture. Additionally, we will reflect on different reading comprehension strategies that will help you to work with texts of increasing complexity.
