Welcome to the Diploma in Italian Online for beginner and intermediate levels. You are going to be part of a groundbreaking experience, which 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 blended 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. Two on campus sessions per year are also included.
This course 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.
