What will the course or workshop cover and how will it be taught?
We will add to the work done on grammar and sentence structure in year one, looking in more detail at verbs, bringing a wider range of conjugations in the present tense and working towards confidence in using the passato prossimo.
There will be further work on plural v. singular and gender agreement, as well as practice of prepositions. 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/workshop 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.
What do I need to bring with me?
Bring a pen, notebook/laptop and your glasses, if you need them.
Please read our Covid safety measures before visiting Brewery Arts.
Are there any additional costs?
You will be asked to purchase a moderately priced course book, to be advised at the start of the course.
