CULP: Italian Basic for Academic Purposes (LAP)


This course will start at Basic level and move quickly through the basics of Italian grammar. Students with some background in the Italian language (Intermediate level) are most welcome to join the group in January (Lent term) when we start reading more complex, original texts.

Using close reading and translation of academic texts from their particular discipline, this weekly class is intended to help research students in the Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences to develop their skills in reading Italian documents that they have come across or may meet in their research.

Students will be encouraged to bring along their own texts and work in pairs to enhance the learning experience. For more detailed information about the course please visit our website.

Target audience
  • Research students from the School of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences and the School of Humanities & Social Sciences
  • Further details regarding Language Centre eligibility criteria are available

N.B. This group is likely to be small and the overall level the course will operate at (basic/intermediate) will depend upon the language proficiency and interest of the students.


Develop strategies for reading longer texts faster through close analysis, grammatical, stylistic commentary, and translation.
