Reading & Writing in Italian

Reading and Writing in Italian: Improve your Writing and Reading

A direct and close contact with some entertaining texts authored by the best contemporary Italian writers will allow the student to grow conscious of her/his voice and achieve a deeper understanding of it. We will read and comment on the texts of the writers and also the texts produced by the students during the course. Our attention will be focused on the structure of Italian sentences, on the meanings of Italian words. We will examine many subtle features of the Italian written and spoken language. We will speak about Italian society, history and politics – all phenomena that give birth to new words. Together we will look for a style, in the pages we read and in the pages we write. Active participation in class is warmly required.

Required Texts: Material for the course will provided by the instructor.
