Our teaching method is based on the most modern techniques of teaching Italian as a second language.
The student will develop a practical capacity for understanding, learning and communication.Our method uses linguistic practice aided by modern text books, multimedial material and a direct student-teacher relationship.
Language classes are made up of a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 students, therefore creating a friendly and supportive environment in which the teacher can review the linguistic progress of each individual student.
ASSESSMENT & EVALUATION
Students will be placed in language classes according to their previous knoweledge of Italian which will be assessed with an oral and written test. Assessment and evaluation of students joining Semester, Academic Year or Faculty Led Programs, will be agreed with the Study Abroad Office and the Faculty Staff.
