Italian Language Courses


The International Student Desk organizes Italian language courses each semester for exchange students to help familiarize themselves with the Italian language.

The following courses will be offered to exchange students for the 2014-2015 academic year:

The Italian Crash Course and the Follow-Up Courses are optional, extra-curricular courses, and therefore will not be included in students' study plans or official transcripts and credits will not be issued.

How to sign-up/apply:
Students interested in signing up for Italian language courses may register for the course when they fill out their online application for the exchange program. Students who have registered for the Italian language course will need to take an online placement test which will determine their appropriate course level. There is a time limit for completing the test and after submitting their test, students will no longer be able to access it. Students will also be required to pre-pay an enrollment fee online by credit card.

Students can choose between the following two options:

1.Italian Crash Course ONLY (40 hours of lesson)


2.Italian Crash Course + Follow-Up Course (40 + 30 hours of lesson). This option is open only to those students who enrol in, attend and pass the following Crash Course levels: Beginner, Pre-Elementary,  Elementary and Pre-Intermediate. 

Please note: it will not be possible to register for the Follow-Up Course only without registering for the Crash Course.
