This Italian course, general in character, consists essentially of two parts:
the first part is concerned mainly with the study and analysis of grammatical and structural aspects of the Italian language.
The first teacher-to-class phase is followed by exercises done both in class and at home to reinforce what has been studied.
the second part consists of activities that develop communicative competence and writing skills.
Through games, role play, readings, discussions, listening to dialogues, songs, watching films, short compositions and dictations, our mother tongue Italian teachers, qualified in the teaching of Italian to foreigners, guide the students towards an improvement of their complete knowledge and use of the Italian language.
Elements of Italian culture and civilization are always subjects of conversation and comparison during the Italian lessons in class and, according to the level of knowledge the students have of the Italian language, the subjects discussed will range from simple (e.g. the sequence of dishes of a typical Italian meal) to more complex debates (e.g. current affairs in Italy).
The General Italian course is held in Pisa and consists of 20 group lessons a week, 4 lessons a day, each lesson lasts 55 minutes, from 09.00 to 13.00
