The course, designed for complete beginners, introduces the students to the basic structures of Italian language and the key aspects of Italian culture such as arts, gastronomy, fashion, music, festivals and traditions. The course develops listening, reading, speaking and writing skills for an effective interaction in Italian. Through the use of a textbook and various audio-visual materials specifically tailored for NTU, students will work with activities designed to train them to deal with simple everyday situations and to master basic Italian grammar. They will read texts, answer simple questions orally, role-play, watch videos and write simple essays. Students will be also engaged in information-based tasks, working collaboratively to achieve individual and collective goals.
