Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions

Content

In this module, students gain basic knowledge of Italian as a foreign language, enabling them with minimal language skills to successfully manage basic everyday situations in both written and oral communication. Additionally, opportunities will be made available to effectively organize the process of learning Italian as a foreign language. Students learn/practice "communicative functions": to report in past tense (simple past) about their experiences; to talk about situations, people, and everyday activities in the past tense (simple past/present perfect); to provide descriptions of people (physical description and character traits); make comparisons between two things.To do this, they will learn the necessary grammar.

Learning Outcome

The module refers to level A2 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference). Students gain basic knowledge of Italian as a foreign language with a general language orientation while taking into consideration intercultural and cultural aspects. After completion of this module, students will be able to understand relevant spoken and written information on familiar topics and provide fairly detailed accounts of their experiences in past tense (perfect and imperfect).

Preconditions

Sound knowledge of module A1.2; placement test level A2.1.
