Do you want to be able to speak the language at the basic level when you visit Italy or want to talk with some Italian speaking friends?
This Italian Beginners Plus course is for you. You will benefit from being in a classroom, from exchanging face to face with a supportive tutor and others as you practise speaking and enjoy learning the language.
By the end of the course successful students will be able to:
* give and receive personal information
* use numbers (prices, time)
* describe people and places using the present and the past tense
* go around towns and ask for information
* ask for help, repetition and check meaning
Basic Italian grammar will be taught and students will also gain an insight into the culture.
You will be given small amounts of homework each week (max 1hr) to reinforce classroom learning.

How will I be taught?
The emphasis in this course is on speaking and listening. The lessons focus on language that is required in authentic situations. To help you develop language skills the course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. You will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (role-play and games etc.). To ensure your progression, it is essential to attend on a regular basis. We also recommend that you spend 1 to 2 hours each week doing private study as directed by your tutor.
With your tutor you will monitor and record your progress on your learning plan (ILP)
What do I need to bring with me?
The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. Students will need to bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session.
What can I do next?
