Italian Beginners Intensive

  • Students

    This course is suitable for students who have either never studied Italian before and would like to study at a slightly faster pace or who studied the language some years ago and would like to go back to the basics on a more intensive course.

     Over the course of the three terms students will:

    • study the vocabulary of everyday topics which will enable them to get by when  travelling to the country  and to communicate on a simple level with local people.
    • be introduced to simple but authentic and real reading texts 
    • become familiar with the basic rules of grammar, enabling them to create simple sentences independently and to produce simple pieces of writing such as postcards & informal emails
    • through the study of the language, become familiar with many aspects of life and culture

    By the end of the course students will have studied a selection of the following topics:

    • Greetings, goodbyes and other social expressions
    • Family and personal details
    • Numbers, dates, time, colours
    • Where I live / my home
    • Work and daily routine
    • Free time and hobbies / likes and dislikes
    • Out and about  (in the cafe/restaurant,  directions,  shopping, booking a room in a hotel)

    • Gender (masculine, feminine)
