Italian and Greek

Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics


Post A-Level Course

In late August, you will receive a brief questionnaire via email about your past Italian language learning experience. The aim of this exercise is to assess your level of Italian and allocate you to the right group.

The Post-A-Level course is intensive: it develops students' language skills in the use of Italian (ITB1), translation (ITB2) and oral practice through a series of weekly classes and lectures. Paper IT1 ‘Texts and Contexts’ offers students the possibility to study wide variety of different kinds of ‘texts’ from the entire tradition of Italian culture and language from the 14th century to the 21st century. 

Language learning at this level focuses on developing the fluency, accuracy, and scope of your written and oral Italian and aims to enhance your understanding of Italian and your appreciation of the expressive possibilities of the language through a wide range of language exercises both for written and spoken language.
