Lingua italiana (corso per studenti stranieri)

  • CFU 8
  • Prerequisiti

    Basic knowledge of the Italian Language (suggested level: A2)

  • Obiettivi formativi

    The Course is intended to train both Language and Culture skills, through an overall intercultural approach, by constantly giving value to the students’ multilingualism, and also by broadening the use of English from a simple language of mediation. The Italian language content will be tailored on a pre-intermediate/intermediate (A2/B1) level of competence (depending on the condition of the majority of the students); a previous knowledge of Italian is required.

  • Programma del corso

    • talking about one’s family, identifying family relationships; comprehension of some oral and written texts related to this subject. Some specific terms about family, society, politics

    Culture Content:
