Italian - Italiano

Course 1, Course 2, and Course 3

The courses 1 - 3 may be attended by students from all faculties. The courses aim at enabling the participants to aquire a standard pronunciation and intonation of the Italian language as well as a basic knowledge of grammar and vocabulary needed to cope successfully, both in writing and orally, in key communicative situations of every day life as a student and in a professional environment.

In order to reach these aims, the courses take learners through all communicative and language skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking) and give them a thorough grounding in the Italian culture.

Prerequisites for attending
Course 1: none
Course 2: Certificate if course 1 has been completed or for the Placement Test.
Course 3: Certificate if course 2 has been completed or for the Placement Test.

Lateral entrants, i.e. students who did not attend Italian language courses at the Language Centre of the TU Chemnitz, need to have their Italian skills assessed before signing up for an Italian course.

Please contact Daniela Giovanardi ( for an appointment. This oral conversation will cover a range of topics to assess your Italian skills.
