About this course

Want to speak more Italian when visiting Italy and build on your basic skills? Then this Italian Beginners - Further Steps Extra course is for you.
This 10 week Italian Beginners - Further Steps Extra course in Maidstone follows on from our Italian Further steps course and is also for anyone who wants to consolidate their knowledge of basic key phrases and vocabulary especially focussing on conversation skills.
By the end of the course successful students will be able to:
* Request and understand information about travel and transport
* Order food, drink
* Ask for and give directions
* Exchange basic/simple information about self, family, friends
* Ask for information about local facilities
* Identify and request items in a variety of situations
Students will also gain an insight into the culture where the language is spoken.

How will I be taught?

The focus will be on oral communication (speaking and listening) and some reading and writing will also be included. Pronunciation and Italian culture are an integral part of the course. The course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. Learners 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). Homework set will provide an opportunity for self-study to reinforce learning
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 at the end of the course to monitor and record progress. Tutors will mark homework and give written or verbal feedback.

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?

There will be an opportunity to set up a follow on course if enough students want to continue in Term 3, after which the next appropriate follow-on course is a longer Beginners course. The tutor will be able to advise or check
