Florence, Italy, June 20, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Scuola Leonardo da Vinci offers specific paths that aim to enable the student to acquire a good command of vocabulary and expressions typical of a language sector.
The Italian language course does not require a specific level of initial competence, it will be the up to the teacher to organize a specific program corresponding to the level of the student.
The Professional Italian course is structured in two sections:
a) Standard Class. 4 lessons of group instruction (2 lessons of grammar and 2 of conversation) to develop language skills and linguistic communication skills. The group classes give an opportunity to work on the conversation with the teacher and with other students in an environment rich in cultural diversity.
b) Specialized lessons. 2 lessons of individual classes focused on the development of the skills in the technical language chosen. The materials provided by the teacher, the activities at school and the home work allow the students to improve in the chosen field.
During the private lessons on the technical language, the teacher focuses on 3 different aspects:
Specific vocabulary. A key element of the technical languages is the specialized vocabulary, so during the course we are paying special attention to the deepening of this aspect. The teacher selects materials and organizes activities to help improve this kind of knowledge. The goal is to make sure that the student is able to understand technical texts in the most precise way, but also learns how to make appropriate use of the vocabulary acquired.
Specific language expressions. Besides the specific vocabulary, an important part of the work is the analysis of some idiomatic expressions of the technical language. they aim the phrases and combinations of phrases which are used particularly often and are difficult to understand without a proper preparation.
Typical text types for the field. Finally, the course analyses the kinds of texts typical for the sector in order to highlight both the general structure and the linguistic characteristics. The aim is to enable students (in relation to the level of competence) to understand specialized texts and create such on their own.
