Italian Language I - Intensive Summer

The objective of the intensive first level course is to introduce the student to the Italian language, covering the basic communicative tools useful for everyday interaction while in Italy.
We will utilize an integrated communication method that puts the student at the center of the learning process in a cooperative relationship with the teacher. This perspective is based on the principle of the negotiation of the content of the course and the teaching strategies.

Grammatical theory will be always connected with the practical use of the language.

The students will be taught not only the linguistic system, but they will be given strategies and techniques that facilitate the learning process.

All of the didactic materials used throughout the course, such as textbooks and multimedia devices, are in Italian.
