Brief description

This module forms part of the core Level 2 programme in European Languages (Italian Minor) and is one of the three written language courses taken in that year (it may be taken in Year 4 by students who take up the minor language ab initio in Year 2). It thus follows on from the appropriate module in earlier years (IT10740, IT21530) and aims to deepen students' understanding of Italian as a written language and to enhance their knowledge of Italian more generally, with the emphasis in assessed work being on the ability to translate accurately and idiomatically from Italian. Students who successfully complete the module should feel that they will have a good advanced passive command of different registers of Italian and a better understanding of the workings of Italian grammar within the written language.


This module is at CQFW Level 5
