Italian CEFR 0 > A1
The Italian language courses of the University of Groningen Language Centre focus mainly on speaking and understanding Italian. Grammar is not a goal in itself in our Italian language courses, but will be used to support the language acquisition.
This course is for participants who speak little or no Italian.
Language of Instruction
The target language is the language of instruction as much as possible. When necessary, the course is taught in English.
This course will be taught as an online interactive group course via Blackboard Collaborate; our online classroom for the coming period! One lesson lasts 90 minutes. Per lesson you should count on 3 hours of self-study and 1 hour of collaborative group work. Read here everything you can expect from an online language course.
The course material is not included in the course fee and is not available at the Language Centre.
You will also be using online course material in Nestor, the digital learning environment of the University of Groningen.
At the end of a course, every participant will receive an attendance certificate on condition that they have attended 75% of the lessons.
Using a Rosetta Stone account besides a language course
It is possible to use a Rosetta Stone account for online independent study besides one of our language courses, with the advantage that the account can be used after the course to keep working on your language skills. Please note that a Rosetta Stone account is not compulsory for our language courses and will not be used by the teacher.
