Development of the knowledge of Italian as a foreign language at the level A1 according to the CEFL (2001):

Comprehension of some basic standard written texts in common use.

The comprehension of standard oral texts marked with clear, natural pronunciation, which are used in predictable situations (basic dialogues in basic communicative situations).

Gradually gaining some forms of use of written and oral skills in common communication situations with clear communication purpose (narration, description).

Study of civilization and cultural aspects of Italy (I).

During the process of gaining communication competence a special emphasis is put on functional lexis/vocabulary and the following grammar issues:
- verb tense: use of the present tenses (inclusive perifrastic), modal verbs, present perfect tense (forms and basic uses, contrastive aspects with Slovenian as L1)
- verbal mode: indicative, conditional (forms and basic uses, contrastive aspects with Slovenian as L1),
- some phrasal verbs (I),
- text coherence: use of basic connectors (I),
- syntax (I): understanding of approx. one quarter of subordinate clauses or syntactic patterns, active use of some of most frequent types from some groups of subordinate patterns.
