Module content and teaching

Principal aims

"Modern Italian Language II caters for students who have returned from the year in Italy, for students who took IT107 and are not going to Italy in year 2, and for year 4 students doing a ""with Italian"" degree. It aims to consolidate language work undertaken during the previous year(s)."

Principal learning outcomes

The course is divided into writing, translation, and oral work. The writing part of the course aims to familiarise students with a range of contemporary Italian. In particular students will be encouraged (i) to learn how to develop and express an opinion and (ii) to tell a story. Summary work and extensive grammar revision will also feature in this part of the course. This class will foster language awareness through translation from English into Italian and Italian into English. Translation from Italian into English will focus on a range of registers, e.g. contemporary fiction, journalism, critical writing. Students will engage in conversation and learn how to sustain an oral presentation.

Timetabled teaching activities

The module is taught through three hours of tuition each week for 21 weeks: 9 weeks in terms 1 and 2 (to accommodate the reading week in week 6) and 3 weeks in term 3.
