Course description

Italian Beginners (Year 1):

This Italian Beginners course is an introduction to the Italian language and culture. During the first year, students learn how to introduce themselves, their professions and family members, talk about likes and dislikes and express preferences, how to order food and drinks, describe one’s house, how to ask and give directions, describe clothes including their colours, etc. Not only do students learn how to make statements about daily life, they also learn how to abstract the relevant information by asking questions and practising these questions and responses in class. Students learn how to book holidays, buy products and order services, etc. The course runs over three terms and at the end of the first term, students are able to ask questions and speak about all aspects of daily life in the present tense. In order to build confidence and understand the structure of the language, students learn articles, verb conjugation, pronunciation, comparatives and superlatives as well as adjectives. Past and future tense are introduced in terms 2 and 3.

Additional entry requirements

If you want to study on the next course in May (term 3) you should be able to talk about your daily activities; order in a cafe; describe a place and give directions; say what you like or dislike; use common irregular verbs in the present; use the imperative, possessive pronouns and common adverbs of frequency; or approximately 40 hours of formal prior study or have a 'rusty' GCSE.
