ITALIAN LANGUAGE COURSES
Italian for Travelers
Learning Italian is simple and effective with the straightforward approach of this course for beginners (A1). This course is ideal both for those spending time in Italy for pleasure and those seeking work in the country, providing a basic level of conversational Italian in just a short time. Acting as a kind of "practical guide to Italy", the topics cover a variety of useful situations with dedicated cultural sections that introduce aspects of Italian daily life. The course includes few elements of grammar and exercises, self-assessments and a bilingual Italian-English glossary. The textbook comes complete with audio CD containing the dialogues for each lesson together with recordings of vocabulary for easy pronunciation practice.
Individual courses are for people who are not able to make a long-term program and are designed and arranged on an individual basis to meet your needs, for as may hours as you want, in a given period of time.
An alternative to individual lessons: two-three students who have a similar level of Italian can arrange to take “semi-individual” lessons. Ideal for friends or family members. Like individual lessons, these can be very effective if you have specific needs, or if you are unable to attend a course at the usual time.
This course will progress at just the right speed for you.
The number of lessons can be decided by the students, even if a successful individual course lasts about 15-30 hours for each level.
