About this course

Come along to discover more about modern and classic Italian literature and authors. We meet fortnightly in Tunbridge Wells (except for the first 2 lessons that will be on the 1st and 8th November) to discuss a chosen book in our course Italian Reading for Pleasure.
The last three lessons will be consecutively.
Books will vary in genre course after course. The books we discuss may exist in translation and key passages will be given to enable less fluent readers to access the books quickly. Students will be encouraged to suggest books which we might read and enjoy together.

By the end of the course, successful students will
- have developed satisfaction in reading in Italian
- have increased their bank of vocabulary and expressions
- have bridged grammar gaps
- have extended their knowledge of the Italian written world in relation to texts studied
- have exchanged information, discussed ideas related to the texts (content, bio, context and culture)

Please note that the first lesson on the 1st November will start at 11.30.

Dates for the meetings:
1-8 22 November (first 2 lessons are consecutively)
6-20 December
10-24 January
7-21 February
7-21 March

How will I be taught?

We will read the texts (short books or extracts) in our own time with the help of a reading guidance worksheet. Fortnightly meetings allow plenty of time between classes. We will discuss the texts in class, either in Italian or in English and develop skills to develop appreciation of works written in Italian.
This course does not lead to any formal qualification, so there is no pressure on you to complete assessments or to take exams. Tutors will assess you informally during the class and use the Individual Learning Plans for constructive feedback.

What do I need to bring with me?

We expect to read a total of six books or texts, of manageable size. Students who own an E-reader may be able to read some books electronically if they prefer. Students should bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts. The first text will be provided at the first session.
If the group decides to study books that are not yet in the Public Domain, students will have to arrange to pay the charge to access these books. This will be discussed in the first class.

What can I do next?

As the course Italian Reading For Pleasure will look at different texts, you can attend any of them year after year.
