CULP: Italian Through Film (Italiano e Cinema)

Description

Italian through Film is a content-based language course for students who already have a good command of the Italian Language (at least B1 and preferably B2, for information about these levels please see the CULP enrolment 'Italian levels and assessment' page).

The course is based around classic Italian films that are readily available from the John Trim Centre for Independent Learning at the Language Centre.

Italian through Film will begin with a general introduction to the Italian language with special reference to film-related terminology. Every film will be introduced by a session (2 lessons) devoted to its linguistic features and a range of relevant listening, reading and subsequently communicative exercises. After the viewing of the film (students will do this in their own time at the John Trim Independent Learning Centre here at the LC) there will be a session devoted to the artistic (director, actors, style of expression etc.) context followed by a further discussion about the film's aesthetic, wider cultural, historical and political implications.

All teaching and discussions will be in the Italian language and students will be expected to actively participate and contribute.

This course features no assessment component upon completion.

Target audience

  • Further details regarding Language Centre eligibility criteria are available
