LNGE11028 - Basic Italian

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In this unit, you will be developing vocabulary in the Italian language, alongside basic conversational skills, through various mediums, including film, television and song. Using enquiry-based learning, you will develop Italian vocabulary and grammar, through the use of IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet). This unit will encourage you to become independent reflective learners, thereby increasing your own cultural and linguistic competence. By the end of the unit, you will be able to hold a basic conversation in Italian and translate basic phrases into both idiomatic Italian and IPA. This unit is especially useful if you are a student studying classical voice as you are often required to sing in the Italian language, or if you have a general interest in learning Italian for personal interest.
