Italian Language Laboratories

In conjunction with their monthly language courses, students at LINGUA IT can elect to attend one of the school's extra-curricular Laboratories.

Italian laboratoriesBased on student interaction and collaboration, these group workshops are dedicated to the production of creative and artistic works in the Italian language. The loose, collaborative nature of the Laboratories allows students to immerse themselves in the creative process and discover the artistic and poetic aspects of the Italian language. All Laboratories are supervised by experienced teachers who will guide participants through all phases of the project, from the initial concept to the realisation of a final text, artwork or performance at the conclusion of the four-weeks. Forced to deal with new and dynamic ideas and language while remaining an enthusiastic and collaborative member of a team, students who participate in LINGUA IT's Laboratories notice a marked improvement in their language skills over a relatively short period of time. The practical and creative demands of producing a final work in a specified period of time, necessitates that students communicate quickly, clearly and precisely with the other members of the workshop. Laboratories are held in the afternoons. LINGUA IT will provide all participants with a copy of their final work (written, audio or visual) at the completion of the course.

Due to the collaborative nature of these workshops, a minimum number of four students is required for a course to be activated. The price of each Laboratory includes all materials and equipment used.

THEATRE PERFORMANCE LABORATORY
(This Laboratory is open to students of all language levels)
During the Theatre Performance Laboratory, students will compose, produce and workshop a theatrical composition. The final work will be performed, at the conclusion of the four-week laboratory, for the students and staff of the LINGUA IT institute. The subject matter, themes and style of the theatrical piece will be determined by the participants of the Theatre Performance Laboratory at the commencement of the course. They will then take part in a series of language-based improvisation sessions directly relating to the subject matter they have selected. From these sessions, through group interaction and editing, a text will emerge that will become the base-script for the final production. Students will then fine tune the script and rehearse for the final performance.

JOURNALISM LABORATORY
(This Laboratory is recommended for those with an intermediate or advanced knowledge of Italian)
In this Laboratory, students choose the themes and issues that interest them, within and outside the institute, and then write and edit an edition of a small Italian newspaper including articles, reviews, photographs, critiques etc. In the Journalism Laboratory, students are exposed to the forms and style of expression most regularly employed by Italian journalists. Guided by the teacher, students work collaboratively to produce a comprehensive and legitimate version of their own Italian newspaper. A novel and enjoyable way of learning Italian, this course allows for lively interaction with the social and cultural surroundings.

WRITING LABORATORY
(This Laboratory is recommended for those with an intermediate or advanced knowledge of Italian)
The work that unfolds in this Laboratory ends with the production of a complete and original text written collectively by the students, wholly in Italian. Students will look for inspiration through in-depth analysis of a range of texts varying in style, theme and format (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, historical chronicle, literary passage, novella, diary, letters). The Writing Laboratory encourages participants to throw their work open for group discussion and analysis. The collaborative nature of this Laboratory guarantees student interaction, teamwork... and results.

DOCUMENTARY LABORATORY
(This Laboratory is open to students of all language levels)
Students of the Documentary Laboratory are guided through the making of a short documentary film, completely of their own devising, based on a theme than has common interest for all participants. This Laboratory offers students an excellent opportunity to investigate all the cultural and social aspects of Italy (and the Italians) that have interested or intrigued them during their stay in our country. At the completion of the course, the final documentary will be screened to which all LINGUA IT students and staff will be invited. Participants in this Laboratory will, of course, be given a copy of the finalised work to take with them as a permanent record of their experiences in Italy.

WINE AND COOKING LABORATORY
(This Laboratory is open to students of all language levels)
Easily accessible to students of all language levels, this Laboratory offers its participants the opportunity to explore and delight in the wonderful flavours, aromas and textures that combine to create the unique entity that is Italian regional cuisine. The Wine and Cooking Laboratory includes practical cooking demonstrations, sampling sessions of typical Italian products and raw ingredients as well as visits to various trattorias and agriturismo farms. Through it all, students will be on a delicious sensory voyage, exploring in-depth, the distinctive products and their particular methods of production (from winemaking to olive oil pressing) that give Italian fare its characteristic uniqueness. All information gathered during this Laboratory is compiled for participants in a comprehensive local wine and food guide, complete with reviews of all the products and places they have visited during the course and details of the production methods they have seen.
The times, price and structure of the Wine and Cooking Laboratory may vary depending on the requirements and preferred itinerary of participating students
