CULP: Italian Intermediate 2
Prerequisites£

Mon 21 Oct, Mon 28 Oct, ... Mon 9 Mar 2020

Description

The Programme offers general language tuition with a focus on communicative competence.

At intermediate 2 level, the focus shifts slightly towards reading and writing whilst still offering plenty an opportunity for oral communication. The syllabus is more topical and the contents feature many a cultural, historical, political and current affairs theme. While the grammar is analysed within a context, explicit grammar instruction becomes an integral part of the course.

More detailed information is available from the Language Centre website.
