The title of this course is più scrivi, più parli, which means ‘the more you write, the more you speak’ and it is meant to boost students’ productive skills. Through written activities students will learn to reflect on their use of the language and organize their thoughts with clarity and cohesion, in order to express themselves fluently in various communicative contexts. Students will assimilate the language of native speakers, acquiring strategies that will help them to write increasingly complex texts and to effectively have a conversation and speak with ease and confidence.
Written assignments will mainly be given as homework and will consist of, for example, writing articles, reviews, letters and presentations. In class, students will receive feedback from their teacher and work together, with a focus on speaking skills. Think of engaging class activities like open conversation on the topics of the written assignments, but also class debates, interviews, presentations and roleplays.
Students need to have finished at least level B1.1 to join this course.
