Welcome to the Diploma in Italian Online: Intermediate. You are going to be part of a ground-breaking experience which, employing the latest skills in e-learning, will enable you to study a language in your own time, wherever you are, and as part of a community of e-learners. Unlike many distance learning courses designed for individual and totally independent learning, this diploma course is based on a collaborative, communicative approach and students are encouraged to participate in virtual class activities with their peers and e-tutor. Three on campus sessions per year are also included.
The Diploma in Italian Online: Intermediate concentrates on all four main language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and uses carefully selected authentic material to introduce or consolidate the structures and functions of the language. In addition, a cultural module will explore aspects of Italian life from an intercultural perspective and stimulate discussions about them.
Students will be guided through more advanced structures and functions of the language. By the end of each semester/year you should be able to interact confidently in a variety of situations.
