Foreign students coming from Partner Universities under the LLP Erasmus Programme or a Bilateral Exchange Agreement can be admitted to the Course of Italian Language which is free of charge.
Intensive Italian Language Course
The aim is to give students a basic competence in Italian in order to guarantee them a better understanding of their courses.
The Course takes place in classrooms at the Unicusano Campus (via don Carlo Gnocchi 3, 00166 Rome)
The course is divided into three levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Each course lasts a month (30 days) and consists of 30 hours of lessons per week.
The Beginner course (Levels A1/A2) is free. The Intermediate (level B1/B2) and the Advanced course (levels B2/C1) have an enrolment fee.
All incoming students can participate in the Intensive Italian Language Course once they have taken the entrance test to assess their level of Italian.
Beginner Level (A1-A2)
The aims of the course are to enable students to understand and use basic expressions in everyday contexts, so that they can communicate in a simple and practical fashion. At the end of the course students should be able to use and comprehend the language in routine situations, and describe aspects of their personal experience, such as their families, work or studies.
Intermediate Level (B1/B2)
The aims of the course are to enable students to understand connected and appropriately complex discourse on a wide range of cultural and topical subjects. At the end of the course, students should be able to start, maintain and finish short conversations, understand routine spoken dialogue, make themselves understood and exchange ideas on familiar topics, describe experiences, express their opinions and discuss their intentions.
Advanced Level (B2/C1)
The aims of the course are to enable students to develop linguistic accuracy and communication skills and achieve a high level of spontaneity in both spoken and written Italian. At the end of the course, students should be able to master different registers in the language (formal, informal, colloquial and slang) and to communicate complex ideas in both spoken and written form.
Students will need to have attended at least 70% of the total amount of hours and have passed a final test to receive a certificate of attendance (without credits).
