Course Content

If you have enjoyed and been successful on the Beginners’ course, or if your knowledge of Italian already allows you to “get by” the Continuers course will help you to understand a little more and become a little more independent.

The course will cover further situations frequently encountered as a visitor to Italy, including areas such as:

  • Handling money and shopping for food
  • Understanding what there is in town and simple directions
  • Booking and checking into a hotel
  • Using public transport

Along the way students will practise their listening, reading and speaking skills with some writing. The emphasis is on communication, finding out more or sharing experiences of Italian culture and enjoying learning the language.

Exams and Assessments

There is no formal assessment.
