Italian at The Sir John Colfox School

Course description

The course aims to enable students to use the spoken language fluently and correctly, to develop a high level of comprehension of the language in a variety of contexts, and a high level of written accuracy, together with acquisition of knowledge about the contemporary society, cultural background and heritage of Italy.

The units of study are graded in complexity of theme and language, starting at the beginning of the course with topics that will be familiar to students from GCSE, and leading to more complex topics such as the environment and religion.

At AS students will choose to study two cultural topics which will vary depending on their own interest. At A2, pupils are encouraged to become much more independent in their research and this allows them to study something that really interests them.
