ITAL 6503

Written and Spoken Italian

The course offers students the opportunity to develop oral and written knowledge at an advanced level, focusing on both the more specifically grammatical and stylistic aspects of Italian. Attention will be given to syntax, to resume and reinforce the specificities of the Italian language, focusing on the structure of the period and its propositions. Through the analysis of different linguistic areas, students will achieve an understanding of the Italian language in its various uses. Texts by authors of Italian literature will also be read and analyzed, to gain awareness of grammatical and thematic-stylistic structures. The lessons will also include written compositions by the students, who will have to practice in textual analysis and autonomous compositions of texts in which to create characters, environments, stories. The aim of the course is to provide students with the syntactic and stylistic tools to find their Italian voice, in writing and oral expression, starting from the examples of our great literature.
