Italian Advanced

Ref: C3680178

This course is aimed at people who have an advanced knowledge of the Italian language and are 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 in Italian. Being focused on communication skills, active participation during the classes will be encouraged. Each term topics covered earlier will be revised and new themes will be introduced to broaden the learners' understanding of the society and culture of contemporary Italy and to enhance their linguistic skills. Some knowledge of the Italian language is required. 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.
