This introductory course is designed to teach participants with no prior knowledge of Italian how to understand and speak the language. Participants will receive a grounding in Italian grammar and conversational skills; each session will comprise both grammar and conversation. Class participation is an important element of the course and participants will be expected to spend time each day doing homework tasks. On completion of the course participants should be able to communicate in everyday situations and enjoy access to a challenging and rewarding language, and will have acquired the essential elements that will enable further study.
