Italian with Japanese (Full-Time, 2018 Entry)

 
What will I learn?

This course (25% Japanese) focuses principally on Italian language, culture, and literature but also allows you to begin - or continue – to learn Japanese. Each year this course offers three Italian components (one in Italian language and two other modules in Italian of a cultural and/or literary nature). You will study Italian language at the appropriate level: beginners, intermediate or advanced. Optional modules in Italian range from contemporary Italian culture and comparative literature to the study of aspects of Medieval and Renaissance thought and culture.

In the intermediate and final year you can choose from a range of advanced modules in the department and, in the final year, you can choose to research a dissertation if you wish. The study of Japanese language on this course is suitable for applicants who are beginners in the language or with a qualification up to A-Level standard (or equivalent) in Japanese. However, please note that applicants with Japanese language ability above this level, including native speakers, would not be suitable for this course. You will develop your linguistic skills in Japanese by taking a language module in each year you are at Warwick.

You can spend your year abroad either in Italy for the whole year, or you can split your time between Italy and Japan.

Japanese can only be taken at beginner level or post-GCSE level maximum. You will develop your linguistic skills by taking a language module in your first, intermediate and final year. By the end of the course you will be expected to reach B2 standard (CEFR) in Japanese (this approximates to A Level).

For module information please visit the department's course page.

How will I learn?

We employ a variety of teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars (in which the emphasis is on student participation) and written and spoken language classes. You will spend the rest of your time studying independently, preparing for classes, reading or watching primary texts, engaging with secondary sources, writing essays and working on your language skills.

How will I be assessed?

We will track your progress through a variety of methods, including language assignments, essays, presentations, portfolio submissions and examinations (written and oral). Throughout your course you will receive detailed, personalised feedback to help you to improve your skills.

What opportunities are there to study abroad?

You will normally spend either the second or third year of your course abroad. We offer placements at carefully chosen partner institutions through the University’s study abroad scheme or through independent partnerships. It is also possible to work for the British Council as an English language assistant, or to set up an independent work placement.
