Course aim:
This is an ongoing course. Working in a friendly and supportive atmosphere you will develop your language skills, will improve your confidence and your ability to communicate in and understand the Italian language.
Course description:
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.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. talk and ask about events that will occur in the future
2. make a polite request/express a desire, a wish
3. give advice in a polite way
4. demonstrate an understanding of written material in Italian
5. demonstrate an understanding of spoken material in Italian
How will I learn?

We expect you to attend your classroom sessions and make time to do any required learning activities on your own.

The WEA tutor will use a range of teaching and learning activities and encourage you and the group to be actively involved in your learning. Your tutor will use tasks to see how you are learning, which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects, discussion, written or practical work. Your tutor will give you feedback on your learning and progress.
