During the first weeks we work on introducing course participants to the language and customs of Italy. A particular emphasis is placed on the situations, both everyday and academic, in which members of the EUI community are likely to find themselves.
We ask the participants to work in pairs or small groups to improve their speaking skills without feeling observed, and at the same time to get to know the other participants in the course.
In the second part of the academic year, the course will have a more cultural content for those who have acquired basic language skills.
According to the interests of the participants, the further introduction into the Italian language will happen through reading/writing in small groups, movies, art and other aspects of the Italian culture.
