The learning of a language nurtures reflective, deep and creative thinking in specific ways. It allows students to cultivate culturally distinctive fields of knowledge, and stimulates their awareness of intellectual functioning. In Year 8 Italian, students will continue to explore topics and themes presented in the Parliamo Insieme 1 Textbook which will then be retained until the end of Yr 9.  Students learn new vocabulary and grammar with the help of Education Perfect  to demonstrate their understanding of topics, through various assessment items. In Year 8 Italian, students will be using various ICT skills to produce work and teachers also will present topics to students using various teaching tools, which are enjoyable and engaging for both teacher and student.
