Description

Language of instruction: German and Italian

This course is aimed at participants with previous knowledge of the Italian language. Building on previous knowledge, the aim of the course is to reach an A1 level.
Grammar topics for this level include the use of perfect tense (passato prossimo), irregular plurals, modal verbs (dovere, potere, volere). The course will address the learning needs and interests of the participants and, with a native speaker teacher, it is also designed to stimulate your interest in Italian language and culture and to provide information and materials on socio-cultural aspects of contemporary Italy and the Italian way of life.
At the end of this level, participants will be able to talk about their daily life, eating habits and local and Italian food culture, read and write biographical information about themselves and/or famous personalities, write a description of a city, a country, a fashion style or similar.

A language course thrives on people meeting each other. It is therefore particularly important that you participate actively on a regular basis and prepare well. We would like to point out that in an online course, the emphasis during the attendance time is on the classroom conversation, while listening and reading tasks are more self-study. One advantage of online teaching is that you can receive extensive feedback on written work.

Classes take place in the form of meetings via Webex. The course is administered via Moodle. There you will also find presentations and additional materials. The teacher enrols you in the Moodle course. You will receive the invitation to Webex by email by the first day of class.

The course consists of 30 attendance hours. Attendance is compulsory. If you want to have a performance record, you must not miss more than 6 lessons (20%). The final grade is made up of 30% class participation and 70% final exam.
