Learnt Italian in the past but feeling rusty? Want to revive your skills in a relaxed and friendly class? If you have covered some of the basics and can get by in some simple conversations such as introducing yourself and ordering food Getting Back To Italian will be perfect.
If you wish to enrol on this course for the first time, please contact the Brewery to be put in touch with the tutor to ensure this is the right level for you via firstname.lastname@example.org.
What will the course cover and how will it be taught?
The emphasis will be on communication and we will work on grammar and sentence structure, looking in more detail at verbs, in particular building confidence in using the past tense.
There will be further work on plural v singular and gender agreement, as well as practice of prepositions. We will also begin work on object pronouns.
All will be presented and practised in useful everyday situations. The emphasis will be on developing speaking and listening skills, via a variety of exercises and activities in a relaxed atmosphere. Where social distancing allows, there will be lots of pair and group work, and the approach will be light-hearted!
By the end of the course, you will:
have built upon the number of everyday situations in which you can get by and have a deeper understanding of key elements of Italian grammar and sentence structure, giving you the confidence to express yourself a little more freely.
Please note there are no classes during the week beginning 14 February.
What do I need to bring with me?
Please bring a pen, notebook and your glasses, if you need them.
Are there any additional costs?
You will be asked to purchase a moderately priced coursebook which the tutor will advise at the first session.
