The objective of the Italian A level course is to provide students with useful and enjoyable lifelong skills. Teaching is based on thematic approach and you will study a broad range of contemporary issues, and historical and artistic culture within Italy. The study of an Italian film and a literary text is integral to the course. Great emphasis is placed on practising all four language skills. You will be taking notes, listening to recordings, reading texts, engaging in discussions and producing pieces of writing. Regular assessments will help you to consolidate and improve your grammar and vocabulary. IT and networked resources are widely used in class activities and to facilitate self-study. During the course, you will have the opportunity to visit museums, art galleries and attend cultural events and debates hosted by the Italian Institute of Culture.
