Do you want to speak Italian like the Italians? Then this 11 week Italian Advanced course in Sevenoaks is for you. You will learn how to communicate in Italian with a near-native degree of fluency and accuracy talking about various topics rel;ated to history, geography, art, current affairs.

Successful students should be able to:

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 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 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?

The appropriate follow-on course is another Advanced course at a higher level or an Advanced conversation course. The tutor will be able to advise or check

What do I need to join the course
