Continuing Italian (T)

Students of Continuing Italian have studied Italian previously at High School or speak the language on a regular basis at home.  They often need to develop their language skills to a more complex and abstract level.  Sometimes a test may be given to assess the appropriate level of entry.

The course aims to enhance students’ communicative skills and cultural awareness in both written and spoken Italian. Students continue to expand their knowledge of the language in preparation for tertiary studies, work or for enjoyment. This course consists of 4 semester long units, although whole units may be divided into two half units.  Students may complete a minor or major.  This course consists of four units of study.  Each unit is one semester in length and consists of two modules.  Year A and Year B are offered in alternate years.  In 2018 the Year A units are offered, followed by the Year B units in 2019.
