Italian Improvers (York) Evening course

Ref: C3680057

This is an ongoing course. It is aimed at people who have already studied Italian for at least two or three years and already have a knowledge of the Italian language, but keen to develop it further. The course will focus on oral, listening and speaking skills, but also reading and writing, so that the student will be able to communicate effectively. Being focused on communicative skills, an active participation during the classes will be encouraged. Each term will cover a different topic designed to broaden the learner's understanding of Italian society, culture and lifestyle. Some knowledge of the Italian language is required (see the section "Pre-course work"). If you want to join the group this year and want to check your level, please ask the WEA to put you in contact with the tutor.
