This module forms part of the core Level 2 programme in Italian and is the main language course in that year.
The aims of the module are:
The format of this 'thin' module is as follows: there will be two weekly classes (one concentrating on oral and one concentrating on written skills) and one fortnightly class. The weekly hours will be devoted to a variety of language exercises aimed at developing written and oral skills. The fortnightly hour will involve translation practice from and into Italian.
Continuous assessment marks for the module will be derived from written work set by the tutor, and from attendance, active contribution and performance in the weekly oral hour.
Formal examinations -written language and oral/aural - will take place at the end of the second semester.
The modules in Business Language IT20310 this year and Language of Current Affairs IT30310 in later years are complementary to this module.
