|A graduation ceremony at Paris-Sorbonne University, Abu Dhabi|
This initiative is a joint venture between The Department of Applied Foreign Languages of Paris-Sorbonee University Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy to the UAE, Abu Dhabi. Apart from knowing the classical and contemporary of Italy, the language study will help people involved in finance, business and trade including managers, investors, technicians and others whose job profile requires them to interact with numerous Italian industries and craftsmanship.
Held at the Paris-Sorbonne University, Abu Dhabi campus, the Italian language course aims at developing your written and oral communication skills while simultaneously offering a cultural insight. Classes involve a diverse mix of students from different nationalities that creates a stimulating environment. This course is organized on levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages of the Council of Europe. Classes are taught by native teachers, trained in teaching Italian as a foreign language.
Classes have already commenced from 14 April 2014. But new students can also join. Classes will be held twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays. The duration of each class is 2 hours (6-8pm) subject to changes based on availability of students and teachers. Each level will comprise 13 weeks of classes and students are required to complete 52 hours (4 hours every week) to move to the next level.
Price of the study materials is AED 200 apart from the registration fee. These manuals can be ordered from the Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi Finance department. There will be a mandatory written exam for all students to receive a certificate from PSUAD. The required average must be at least 10/20 in the final exam. For attending all 52 hours of classes will cost around AED 3,400 per person.
