  • Is this course for you?

    The course is for the complete beginner who would like to learn Italian for their holidays and have a desire to learn Italian and have fun whilst doing so.

    • Commitment to the learning
    • A love of Italy and its cultural aspects

    • Confidence to speak aloud in class in Italian
    • A willingness to embrace grammar aspects

  • Required qualifications

    No knowledge required but a desire to learn Italian and to have fun whilst doing so.

  • What skills will I develop?

    You will learn essential language skills for holidays. The course is topic based, using situations relevant to holidays.

    You will learn greetings, numbers and currency, dates and times, booking tickets, making hotel reservations, shopping and ordering a meal. As well as listening, reading and speaking, a little writing will be necessary, although the emphasis is upon oral communication.

  • Careers

    Learners will also be equipped and have the confidence to progress to the next level of learning – Italian Beginners 1.

  • English and maths

    English: learners will develop verbal communication skills through class activities with peers and through interaction with tutor. English grammar points will be highlighted and developed by means of the use of corresponding Italian grammar.

    Maths: learners will develop confidence in maths through using numbers when asking/giving age, talking about numbers of family members, asking/giving prices and practising number skills via games such as bingo.

    Digital: learners will be able to use tablets, if they wish, to access the core course resource (BBC Talk Italian 1). Various websites will be used to enhance the learning and learners will watch video and YouTube clips and access online language games. Emails will be exchanged between tutor and learners for updates and queries.

    A Smartboard will be used in class and learners will use the Internet for research of topics as well as Google Classroom for tutor/learner, learner/tutor and learner/learner communication.
