Second level advanced course [C2]

Objectives

The objective of the 2nd Level Advanced Course (C2) is to make students experts in both the written and spoken aspects of the Italian language. They should know how to use the language with expertise and fluency.
At the end of the course students must prove that they not only have good linguistic skills but are also competent in the most important aspects of the morphology and syntax of contemporary Italian in all of its varieties. They must demonstrate their ability to apply the pragmatic rules in both oral and written communication as well as the rules of style indispensable for a creative use of the language.
For this reason students who wish to attend this course must already be highly competent in their use of the language.
The 2nd Level Advanced Course (C2) provides students with linguistic competences equivalent to the CELI 5 Certificate.
