Description

C2.1

In this course, students will learn to cultivate more authentic Italian, learning jargon and specialized words and phrases commonly used in the fields of science, medicine and law. While this course focuses on conversation and analysis of written and oral texts, the origins of exceptions to grammatical rules studied up to now will be explained and some of the most important rules will be reviewed.

Il corso si rivolge a studenti di livello avanzato che desiderano approfondire la conoscenza della lingua italiana, acquisire sicurezza nella comunicazione spontanea, perfezionare le capacita’ espressive e la competenza d’uso di strutture grammaticali e lessico.

Gli approfondimenti grammaticali riguarderanno: il che polivalente; ; i promoni relativi doppi Chi e Quando; l’infinito presente e passato; il periodo ipotetico con ipotesi in forma esplicita; i superlativi idiomatici; i verbi pronominali; l’imperativo nel discorso indiretto; usi particolari dell’avverbio tanto.

I contenuti comunicativi includeranno: riconscere e capire espressioni colloquiali; usare giochi di parole; usare espressioni idiomatiche derivanti dalla gestualita’; esprimere un parere o una preferenza; esprimere ipotesi e commentare delle statistiche; comprendere il significato ed usare neologismi.

Al fine di ampliare la competenza lessicale si approfondiranno aree semantiche relative alla musica, alla moda e all’abbigliamento, all’opera, al ruolo della donna nella societa’, all’evoluzione della lingua.
