Prerequisites
General Prerequisites
The Italian language course in level C1/C2, structured towards a unique linguistic-cultural direction, aims at putting the students in a position to master all varieties and registers of the language both orally and in writing, thus expressingthemselves precisely and fluently. At the end of the course the students must prove that they possess a good linguistic competence and a sufficient metalinguistic competence, which should allow them to describe the principal traits of the morphology and syntax of the contemporary Italian language. They should moreover be able to apply the pragmatic rules that preside the use of the language and those stylistic ones to which their creative and poetic work is submitted. Therefore, when entering the course, the knowledge of the basic structures of the morphology of the Italian language is taken for granted.
