Italian Advanced I, II and III

What will I learn?

During this course, which continues after the intermediate level, we will learn how to understand and engage in longer conversations about specific topics in order to achieve a level of fluency that allows us to easily interact with native speakers. We will also look at the main differences between oral and written Italian, and at different kinds of sectoral language, such as legal, medical economical, philosophical, and political.

Themes we become familiar with at this level are: hypothetical situations, Italian literature, theatre, cinema, art, folklore and history, talking about our problems, cause-and-effect and its concerning conjunctions, news items, and debate. At this point, the students are always welcome to propose topics according to their interests. We will further explore different writing techniques (review, critical essays, formal correspondence), figures of speech, idiomatic expressions, dialects, accents and slang.

The method that is used is Come prepararsi all’esame del CELI 3 -livello B2, livello C1-, together with exercises and activities from other sources.

Required knowledge: It is expected that you have successfully completed a course up to B1. If you are not sure about your level, please contact the teacher.
