Course Theme

The AP Italian Language and Culture course is structured around six themes:

  • Beauty and Aesthetics

  • Contemporary Life

  • Families and Communities

  • Global Challenges

  • Personal and Public Identities

  • Science and Technology

Themes facilitate the integration of language, content, and culture and promote the use of the language in a variety of contexts.

The themes may be combined, as they are interrelated.

World Languages and Cultures Learning Objectives

The AP Italian Language and Culture course provides students with opportunities to demonstrate their proficiency at the Intermediate to Pre-Advanced range in each of the three modes of communication described in the ACTFL Performance Descriptors for Language Learners.

Students are expected to:

  • Engage in spoken interpersonal communication;

  • Engage in written interpersonal communication;

  • Synthesize information from a variety of authentic audio, visual, and audiovisual resources;

  • Synthesize information from a variety of authentic written and print resources;

  • Plan, produce, and present spoken presentational communications; and

  • Plan and produce written presentational communications. 

The AP Italian Language and Culture course emphasizes communication (understanding and being understood by others) by applying interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational skills in real-life situations. This includes vocabulary usage, language control, communication strategies, and cultural awareness. The AP Italian Language and Culture course strives not to overemphasize grammatical accuracy at the expense of communication. To best facilitate the study of language and culture, the course is taught almost exclusively in Italian.

The AP Italian Language and Culture course engages students in an exploration of culture in both contemporary and historical contexts. The course develops students’ awareness and appreciation of cultural products (e.g., tools, books, music, laws, conventions, institutions); practices (patterns of social interactions within a culture); and perspectives (values, attitudes, and assumptions).
