Italian Literature at Play - Letteratura italiana in gioco: Italian Advanced Conversation (B2-C1)

Many L2 learners of Italian, especially at advanced levels, find it difficult to tackle reading a book. The course "Italian Literature at Play - Letteratura italiana in gioco" stimulates the reading of short stories using a variety of linguistic activities (syntax, vocabulary, morphology) and comprehension exercises. The stories are by well-known authors but also by young emerging authors who propose various writing styles and genres.

The course stimulates the student's imagination and creativity both at an individual level where the student has plenty of time to understand and analyse a short authentic text, and in a situation of comparison and work with other students in class.Group analysis helps to consider other points of view but also to explain one's own, giving students the opportunity to have a conversation. Advanced Conversation level, 320 plus hours of prior learning assumed.
