Each lesson meets for 120 minutes and during the class we will use the text book “Nuovo Espresso 1 ” (not included in the course price).

Our Beginners Italian course is an introduction to the Italian language, intended for people who have never studied Italian or people who studied the language many years ago but are rusty.
During the class the tutor will use a communicative approach method and only the target language will be used from the first class.
The class is very interactive and taught with the use of games, images, music and as soon as the level is appropriate, Italian movies, as it is very important to expose students to the spoken language.

Class Plan:

10 Online Sessions that aim to build general basic comprehension and communication skills in elementary Italian.

Planned learning outcomes
By the end of this course students should be able to:

Speak clearly and be understood in basic Italian.
Demonstrate the skills, language and attitudes required for further study of Italian.
As the size of the class is small this let me to suggest extra activities during the class.
The activities I present are aimed to enhance the speaking ability as I like when students use the target language from the very first classes.
I use extra activities also to enlarge vocabulary.
