Course description

Italian Lower Intermediate (Year 2)

You know not to order a cappuccino after 10 o’clock in the morning. You can ask directions to the villa and have a chat whilst queuing at the panetteria. You are comfortable asking how much quelle belle scrape cost in the boutique on via Montenapoleone and can talk about ill sole e la luna with your Italian colleagues.

But now you want to have a proper conversation with the lovely Italian designers you met at Salone del Mobile. During your holidays, you want to be able to understand what the grocer explains to you about the various vegetables in the droghiere locale and grasp the wine grower’s lengthy description at the wine tasting. You want to watch an Italian film and broaden your conversation at a meeting with Italian clients.

Listening, speaking, reading and writing skills are built upon and advanced main points in Italian grammar are all covered.

The course consists of one evening class a week for a total of 30 weeks; spread across three modules, the Italian Lower Intermediate short course is ideal for those with various commitments or working full time.
