Taught in Italian. Open only to students admitted to the Intensive Language Program. Brief assessment in Florence will determine which ITA 380 section you will take. Classes meet at the Centro di Cultura per Stranieri five times a week, Monday–Friday mornings. This course is for students who can follow a more complex conversation, speak on more specific subjects, read and understand more difficult texts and who can express themselves more elaborately in writing. The purpose of the course is to give students a good grammatical basis by enhancing their morphologic and syntactic notions and enriching their vocabulary. There will be reading and dictation of increasing difficulty together with essays and other exercises. Includes a language laboratory. Students may earn up to 3 additional credits by taking the optional one-credit lecture courses.
In spring semesters, the Intensive Language Program starts about one week earlier than the regular SU Florence program.
