For beginners and travellers. Requires no previous knowledge of the Italian language. Ideal for preparing for travel, or as a stepping stone to start one’s path to mastering Italian. Participants learn basic communication, greetings and introductions, how to express likes and dislikes, how to order food, how to book accommodation, find their way around. Grammatical elements are also introduced as the students start to work on their speaking and listening skills. Lessons are specifically tailored to meet each student’s needs and interests and they are based on real life dialogues and real life Italian texts that anybody could experience in a key travel scenario. As you progress, your vocabulary expands, the range of topics and situations you can handle increases as does your confidence. You speak for longer periods, you start seeing the grammar patterns in the language and it all starts falling into place. You will be surprised by how much you will learn in eight weeks and how much fun it is to learn and speak Italian.
