Study French and Italian in New Zealand

University of Auckland New Zealand

The School of European Languages and Literatures at The University of Auckland is considered to be one of the premier academic and professional programmes in Australasia. Its solid reputation reflects the breadth of its courses (some of which are the only ones offered in those languages and cultures in the whole Pacific region) as well as the many strengths in teaching and research found amongst its staff. The School has about twenty-five full-time academic staff who have expertise in most of the major European cultural and literary traditions, as they embrace both Continental Europe and its former overseas colonies, span medieval to modern periods, and include contemporary developments in the Pacific region.

Distance teaching options (ITALIAN 166 and 167; FRENCH 161 and FRENCH 162) exist for beginners' and advanced beginners' language.

The Distance Learning courses are delivered via CD ROMs, the internet, and printed material and have the same academic value (credits) as the ones taken on Campus.

Italian

Italian introduces students to a culture that has exerted a fascination much greater than the size of the country alone warrants. People travel to Italy to see the remnants of ancient Roman civilization, to visit museums, galleries and churches displaying magnificent works of art dating from the Middle Ages and Renaissance, to discover the origins of modern European music and opera, and to savour the atmosphere of some of the most beautiful cities in the world, including Florence, Venice, and Rome.

ITALIAN 166

Course Description

This course is 11 weeks long and is designed to introduce students to the Italian language and culture basics as well as build students' language learning confidence, enhance their communication and problem-solving skills and facilitate the students' drive towards a life-long language learning experience. The following expressions help in describing this course:
  • Distance: students who do not have access or time to attend campus classes are able to enroll.
  • Flexible: students can study at the time and pace that best suits them.
  • Multi-media: video and audio clips and computer-mediated text from a variety of sources provide students with examples of authentic language.
  • Interactive: course material is interactive and students also have the opportunity to interact with peers and their tutor.
  • Personalized: students will be in constant touch with their tutor via e-mail and the feedback will therefore be prompt and detailed.
  • Integrative: each unit builds on the previously learned language and communication skills.

Online Discussion

The Online Discussion room is a place where you discuss class related topics with other students and the tutor. Here you can add new items, or comment on existing discussion items. This resource is very much one in which what you put into it relates what you get out of it. Login to the Chatroom regularly to check for special announcements or news or just to talk to friends.

French


French is either the first or second official language in a great many of the world's nations, and embodies rich and diverse cultural histories. A leader in the spheres of art and literature, science and technology, France is also the fourth world economic power. The study of French involves language acquisition as well as knowledge and understanding of the culture, history and literature of France and the French-speaking world. Rewards from the study of languages and literatures are perhaps greatest in the areas of personal growth and the acquisition of abilities that make for informed, flexible, independent and creative minds.
