LUISS Guido Carli offers Italian language courses to Erasmus and exchange students in both first and second semester. They are free of charge.
The courses have a schedule of three hours per week. The students who attend the courses and comply with the requirements will receive a certificate and gain 3 ECTS credits.
Students who would like to attend the semester courses can register only after arrival.
The course is divided in three levels: beginners, intermediate and advanced.
Beginners Level (A1-A2)
This level is for those who never attended an Italian language course. The main aim of the course is to help the student to understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).
Intermediate Level (A2-B1)
This level is for those who have already attended an Italian course and are able to communicate in daily situations.
The principal aim of the course is to improve oral communication. Particular emphasis is placed on listening comprehension, to enable students to take full advantage of lectures in their classes.
Advanced Level (B1-B2)
This level is for those who are already proficient in the language and need to develop specialist language areas.
The main aim is to help the student reach a high standard of reading and writing skills.
