Students studying Italian at Year 7 level are exposed to a variety of themes that assist them to gain a clear understanding of the language and culture of Italy.

The Year 7 Italian course at Emmaus College follows the Victorian Curriculum Languages achievement standards and includes the strands of Communicating and Understanding. Students demonstrate skills in these strands through different listening, speaking, reading and writing activities and are assessed through the choices they make in formulating their response to, or use of, the language. A combination of language and cultural activities provides an interesting platform for learning all things Italian.
