A new way to challenge yourself, improve your Italian comprehension, and learn more about Italian society. You will acquire, strengthen, and consolidate your competence in Italian on several levels: linguistic, sociolinguistic, cultural, and intercultural. Watching short clips and analyzing relevant points, idiomatic uses, and regional accents, your attention will be captured by various aspects of spoken language and content. Clips – sequenze – are carefully selected from contemporary award-winning Italian films. Readings, pre and post activities (including grammar and vocabulary), and small group discussions will require a fun interactive participation.
