Topic description

This topic is designed to strengthen and extend the students' proficiency in the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Classes will cover upper intermediate features of the Italian language, particularly syntax and stylistics, appropriate to this level.

Educational aims

This topic aims to:

  • Develop learners' knowledge and ability to use moderately complex grammatical structures and vocabulary in Italian
  • Enhance the students' communicative competence through participation in activities involving exposure to different kinds of media and group or pair interaction
  • Expose students to independent and collaborative learning and to language learning skill development
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Identify the main points of clear standard speech in Italian
  2. Communicate in speech and writing on a range of familiar topics, using moderately complex language to produce simple connected texts
  3. Recognise, reproduce and describe grammatical, syntactical, lexical and phonetic structures acquired throughout the semester

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.


If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
