On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Demonstrate a broad palette of Italian vocabulary with a high degree of grammatical accuracy in fluent and spontaneous discussion, even on abstract, complex and unfamiliar topics, supported by a sophisticated understanding of Italian culture.
- Engage successfully with recorded and live speech on concrete and abstract topics, even when not clearly structured or explicitly expressed, as well as long and complex factual and literary texts, with figurative or specialised language.
- Produce clear, complex reports, articles and essays, which develop arguments both critically and systematically with the use of relevant emphases, subsidiary points, and examples.
- Demonstrate finely honed communication, presentation and interaction skills across a wide range of media and circumstances, both formal and informal, for lay and specialised audiences.
- Consistently exercise autonomy and initiative, taking significant responsibility for the work of others and for a range of resources to bring about new thinking.
