Erasmus Intensive Courses in Italian Language

Winter Session 2017

Since the 1999, the University for Foreigners Perugia was commissioned by the National LLP Erasmus agency to organize language preparation courses for students in Erasmus mobility (EILCs). Starting in the academic year 2014/15, following the introduction of the new Erasmus+ Programme (2014/20), these courses have been replaced by linguistic preparation courses conducted entirely online.

In order to meet the needs of those students who are willing to expand their language training through courses that integrate traditional socio-cultural aspects and activities in the territory, the UniStraPg in the academic year 2015/16 will be running the second edition of its Intensive Language Preparation Courses for Erasmus students.

Course Outlines

The objective of the course is providing students with the abilities and skills necessary to stay in Italy at the Institution/University/Company they have been designated for. Courses are organized at Beginner and Intermediate level (from A1 to B2 of the CEFR); they consist of a total of 60 lessons (20 classes per week) + 6 hours of didactic mentoring support and conversation classes with italian students. Classes will be given in Italian from teachers highly experienced in the teaching the Italian language to Erasmus students. The size of each group is around 20 students.

Who can participate

Courses are aimed at international students attending their Erasmus mobility in Italy (either for study or traineeship) in the academic year 2016/17 who are interested in improving their linguistic abilities before the beginning of their mobility period in Italy.

Registration Fee

The cost of the course is 290,00 Euro (it includes the classes and the services for students indicated in the complete program of the courses)
