Let’s start learning Italian!

With this course you will learn the basic elements and key phrases of Italian from the very beginning. You might know a few words already, but what about making your visit more authentic by interacting more with the people once you are there?

The exercises and activities are aimed at building your confidence with key phrases, pronunciation, grammar practice, verb drills (present tense of most common verbs) and speaking/listening activities, but also with games and quizzes.

The syllabus may include: the Italian sounds with a pronunciation guide on the first lesson; formal and informal address; how to greet people, how to introduce yourself/ introduce others, ask for something in cafés and restaurants, giving/exchange details, understanding numbers and prices, talking about jobs and family, where you live; asking and understanding directions and other basic vocabulary when going around shopping; you will also learn some cultural traits and fun facts about Italians.

B1 - B2 Intermediate

Now that you know some Italian, why not improve your language skills and take them to the next level?   

The intermediate course is well structured with grammar activities (such as prepositions, combined articles and pronouns), verb drills (past tenses, progressive forms, future tense), readings with comprehension activities, recounting short stories, common idiomatic expressions, games and quizzes.

The syllabus may include: describing people, booking hotels, booking accommodation online and via emails, more about numbers, describing places, expressing admiration, enquiring about services such as public transport; talking about homes, finding a house; expressing likes and dislikes, shopping for food and clothes, expressing preferences, making suggestions, buying train tickets, understanding directions, describing situations in the past; making plans for the future.

C1 - C2 Advanced

The advanced course is designed for students who already know Italian but want to take their knowledge further in order to hone their skills in all aspects of the language learning.  

With the advanced course, the student will have the opportunity to learn the grammar acquired with the intermediate course, but more in depth with ad hoc activities. The course will focus more on speaking activities: short and medium length articles at the beginning (and progressively longer articles) are used as conversation topics in order to hone vocabulary and grammar skills. The course may include writing tasks about specific topics which the student will discuss during the class with the teacher.

The syllabus may include: saying what you have done recently, saying what you can do, referring to events long ago, making suggestions, understanding and giving instructions, making comparisons, giving reasons, asking for and giving advice, talking about holidays, understanding the weather forecast, making plans for the future.
