Who it’s for:

This course is for people with about two or three years of Italian studies who have completed the A1 level and started A2, or those with knowledge of the present and past tense (including the imperfect and some conditional) who can recognise and use direct and indirect pronouns at a basic level, and basic expressions and vocabulary mainly useful for travelling or describing basic events.

What you’ll learn:

This course will increase your ability to communicate and write in Italian, improve your listening skills and expand your cultural knowledge through a variety of spoken activities, role-plays and listening activities based on real dialogues and video.

This term’s content includes:

  • Recognising the different tenses and using them in your spoken and written communication
  • Translating an A2 beginners text (Ita-Eng and Eng-Ita)
  • Summarising at least five new facts about the Italian culture, geography and celebrations, and comparing them to the British ones or ones from your culture of reference
  • Speaking spontaneously, writing and identifying key points of written texts at A1/beginning of A2 level
  • Using the conditional tense for polite questions, hypotheses and suggestions
  • Recognising and starting to use pronouns (direct & indirect) also in the simple past tense with agreements
  • Starting to use adverbs such as “…già”, “non ancora…”, a couple of prominal verbs and colloquial expressions

What could I do after this?

You could continue to attend classes with RALSS or other providers, or self-study at home. You could also use your knowledge to communicate in Italian outside of class.
