Pillole di italiano A short approach to general and more specific fields and means of Italian language Coordinator: Prof. Pasquale GUARAGNELLA Università di Bari Class Teacher: Dr. Rossella ABBATICCHIO January 28, 2008 – February 1, 2008

2 General technical aspects of the course
Collocation: optional module in the introductory stage of Master for International Business and Economic Cooperation (MIBEC - University of Bari) Duration: 30 hours (laboratories); 45 hours (individual studies) Addressers: graduate students of the Economics, Law and Administration fields

3 Aims and purposes To assess students’ general level of knowledge of Italian language To offer some concrete means for communication, therefore a better integration in the Italian environment To focus on the main specific contents and structures of the business-and-administration variety of Italian language

4 Main steps of the module
Step 1 – Speaking, listening and understanding Italian language: a first training and assessment of knowledge (Duration: 10 hours) Step 2 – “Galateo della comunicazione scritta”: possible approaches and training in written language (general contents) Step 3 – “Manuale dell’italiano professionale”: reading, understanding and producing short business-and-administration texts in Italian language (both oral and written samples)

5 Activities of step 1 “Buongiorno, mi scusi….”: first aid means. Reading and listening to role plays about the basics of everyday life and communication “Essere e avere”: review of grammar basics (verb tenses, general lexicon, elements of syntaxis) “A comando o a invito?” Reflections on linguistic behaviour (i.e. different uses of modals in requests, formal vs. informal linguistic contexts etc.)

6 Activities of step 2 “Dalla frase al testo” I: review of the key-structures of text composition process (syntaxis, connectives, coordination and subordination of sentences, punctuation skills etc.) “Dalla frase al testo” II: First attempts of text composition - Production and coordination of few complex sentences through punctuation – Building up a paragraph “Dentro e fuoritraccia”: how ‘not to disattend’ the given topic in a composition

7 Activities of step 3 From “Caro amico” to “Spettabile Ente”: short reflection on levels of formality in Italian language “Spa”, “Sas”, “Snc”, “Col patrocinio di”: examples of Italian Law,business and administration lexicon “Alla cortese attenzione di”: practice on reading and writing business texts (letters, invitations, application forms, business first contacts etc.) “Pericolo di burocratese”: possibilities to avoid frequent mistakes and too complicate patterns in business Italian

8 ASSESSMENT Step 1: students will be requested to take part in role plays producing segments of speech with reference to some everyday communication contexts. If possible, part of this activities will take place out of the class (in the so called “contesto di comunicazione reale”) Step 2: students will be requested to read and explain in their own words the contents of texts taken from different contexts (from everyday life to newspapers and tv to literary works). Subsequently, they will be requested to produce short texts belonging to the explained tipologies. Step 3: students will be requested to read and explain in their own words the contents of some business and administrative texts, and then to reply with written texts, therefore to use elements of business Italian matching with specific chosen texts.
