This unit consolidates and extends the work begun in ITA1050.


Upon completion of these units students should further develop the four macro skills with specific emphasis on reading and writing, and an informed knowledge of contemporary Italian society in its constant change. In the language component, students are expected to consolidate and expand their knowledge of basic grammatical concepts and vocabulary. They are also expected to reach communicative competence on most topics relating to oneself, one's family, home, school, work and social environment. From the first cultural component, students should have acquired an overview to key aspects of contemporary Italian culture and society.
