Studying the contemporary Italian language and culture.
While learning how to communicate
The course helps students and teachers improve and update their Italian language skills through the use of media and journalistic techniques of writing, listening and reading.
The importance of the mass media communication as a tool for the dissemination of the contemporary Italian language was first recognized by one of the most important Italian linguists, Tullio De Mauro, in 1963 in his “Storia linguistica dell’Italia unita.” He stated that the language of the media is closer to the “authentic” Italian language because it is directed to an unlimited public, anonymous, undifferentiated in terms of cultural/social status, and therefore is referred to as “mass”media.
Many people can benefit from this course. Foreign individuals who have a connection with our country for study, tourism, business or just passion for our culture as well as other professionals who want to improve their Italian language skills through the use of mass media techniques. The course will provide a professional learning environment for practicing these new skills, through the use of the Italian mass media, such as specialized periodicals.
