Cost and enrolment

The cost for classes is £130 per ten week term for returning students and £160 for new students. Fees are non-refundable, but students are very welcome to swap between levels and language if appropriate. Places are on a first come first served basis.

What the different classes cover and who they are aimed at:

Italian stage 1

This is for beginners. We'll aim to cover the following subjects;- how to say who you are, where you live, what your job is, and talk about your family, how to buy clothes in a shop, book into a hotel, get out of an airport, and how to order food in a restaurant. Grammar wise we'll look at singular and plural, masculine and feminine, and the present tense, and if things go quickly, we may look at the past tense too. The main emphasis will be on speaking the language, so that you can go to the country, and make your way around. We might have a go at things like Italian twenty questions, and learn some songs and sayings.

Italian Intermediate

This is aimed at people who have grounding in the language, like GCSE or have studied beginners with me and would like more detailed study. We will be chatting about subjects like shopping, spare time interests, and holidays in some depth. Grammar wise we'll revise the present tense, and masculine and feminine, singular and plural, and then look at the past and possibly future tenses in detail. We'll also have a go at reading magazine excerpts and writing short essays.

Advanced Italian

This is suitable for people who have A-level or possibly degree level Italian, and/or have spent some time in Italy. The class will be entirely in Italian. We will revise all grammar right through from the present tense to the subjunctive. We will look at articles from the Italian news, for example items about education or housing, learn how to absorb the information, and use it as a basis for discussion.
