Development of the knowledge of Italian as a foreign language at the level B1 according to the CEFL (2001):

Comprehension of standard written texts in common use.

The comprehension of standard oral texts marked with clear, natural pronunciation, which are used in predictable situations (television and radio news, discussions, debates).

Gaining independent use of written and oral skills in common communication situations with clear communication purpose (argumentation, narration, planning, description).

Thorough study of civilization-cultural aspects of Italy.

During the process of gaining communication competence a special emphasis is put on the following language/grammar aspects:
- verb tense: use of the past tenses, sequence of tenses, past perfect tense
- verbal mode: the subjunctive (forms and basic use, contrast in use of indicative/subjunctive mode),
- some phrasal verbs,
- text coherence: use of basic connectors,
- syntax: understanding of all types of subordinate clauses or syntactic patterns, active use of most frequent types from all groups of subordinate patterns.
