Course overview

Have you ever wanted to learn Italian to enable you to chat with the locals on holiday? Or maybe you'd just like to learn something new? This course is the perfect starting point to grasp the basics of the language to give you the confidence to progress onto a higher level course. Learn the basics such as greetings, numbers, colours, the alphabet and how to order food and drink.

This course is for you if you have no knowledge of the language or very little and would like a refresher course. It aims to provide you with both an understanding of the basics and Italian culture. The course is based on situations that you may encounter as a visitor to Italy, lessons will be taught through fun and interactive quizzes, games and role play to help you communicate with others in a variety of situations such as personal information, shopping, travel and food and drink.

Although the main focus will be on speaking, other language skills will be acquired and developed - including listening, reading, some writing and basic grammar.

This course is suitable if you have never studied the particular language before and/or have no experience at all of foreign language study.

The are no formal assessments, but your tutor will monitor your progress throughout the length of the course.
