2nd semester 2020/2021 a.y.

During the second semester of the 2020/2021 academic year, Exchange students at Ca' Foscari will be able to take a for-credit Italian language course at the intermediate level.

The course is made up of 30 hours of a general language module which covers sociolinguistic and historical aspects of the Italian language, as well as 50 hours of language skills and grammar (speaking, listening, reading, writing).

The course will be held in e-learning, with some possible face-to-face classes based on the evolution of the Covid pandemic.


How to enrol

In order to enrol in the intermediate Italian language course, students must have an A2 level of Italian. Students can register by filling in the online form, following which they need to take the Placement Test (see next section).

Registration is open from January 11th until January 24th.

Students can take the placement test from January 11th until January 31st.

Placement Test

To take the placement test please visit the SIE Moodle Platform online and log in with your Ca' Foscari Enrolment number ("matricola") and password, and enter in the access code (sent by email and present in the registration form).

NB: The test is progressive, that is it tells you your compatibility with the level of Italian language you are testing for. If you get over 70% in A2, for example, you will then proceed to test for your compatibility with a B1 class, but if you do not get over 60% at the B1 level, you should actually be placed in an A2 class. 

To enrol in the intermediate Italian language class in the II semestre of 2020/2021, your final result must be B1 or higher.

For more information see the Guide below.
