Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This course is designed for students who are post-beginners (below grade 'A' at A level standard) in Italian. Its aims are: to refine and consolidate existing individual skills in the language and to extend them through translation, writing and reading; to practise the skills of aural comprehension and oral communication over a wide rage of topics; to single out and discuss, when necessary, specific problems of grammar and syntax.

Principal learning outcomes

The translation component aims to foster language awareness through translation from Italian into English. Particular attention will be given to the brush-up and consolidation of the basic structure of Italian grammar and the way it is used in different texts. A variety of extracts will be used to illustrate different registers, i.e. contemporary fiction, newspapers, film reviews, business correspondence.

Timetabled teaching activities

3 x 1 hour per week for 20 weeks. (Reading weeks: week 6 in both terms 1 & 2)
