The course is divided into two units:
a) Italian Contrastive Grammar 1
b) Italian Text Formation

Italian Contrastive Grammar 1:
Students upgrade their grammatical competences gained during the first two years of the cycle, extending their knowledge to the contrastive grammar between Italian and Slovene. They gain familiarity with the translation-relevant contrastive analysis methods and topics: comparison of Slovene and Italian clause structures and their interaction with the verb systems of the two langauges; aspectual oppositions (perfect : imperfect; perfective : imperfective; passato prossimo : passato remoto); reported speech.

Italian Text Formation:
Students deal with a series of topics which help them build up their topic-related vocabulary and cultivate idiomatic Italian usage. Oral expression techniques aim to sensitize students to the form of organized classroom discussion. Written expression techniques investigate advanced forms of the writing process, which students apply to the writing skills gained during the first two years.
