This structured course delivered online in real time via zoom has been designed for you to give you all the tools to build up the skills to structure sentences that will help you to get on, understand and be understood.

How will I be taught?

The focus will be in giving you oral and written activities that will help you remember the structure of the various sentences from simple to more complex ones. There will be pair, individual or group exercises to practise listening/writing and oral tasks. Pronunciation and references to the Italian culture are an integral part of the course. The course will be conducted mainly in a facilitated Italian language. Homework set will provide and opportunity for self study including the use of on-line resources.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student's starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets will be set. This will be revisited from time to time during the course to monitor and record progress. Tutors will mark homework and give written or verbal feedback.

What do I need to have 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?

The appropriate follow-on course is a longer Beginners course. The tutor or the Curriculum Leader will be able to advise or check

What do I need to join the course

This course is not for Beginners as the level will be too high. It is ideal for students who have completed a Beginners Plus or have been studying Italian on their own and they need more structure to progress in their learning. Also for anybody who needs to feel more confident with basic grammar or needs some revision. If you are unsure please carry out
our self-assessment test available on or speak to a Curriculum Leader.
