In part 1, you’ll revise beginners topics to refresh your memory. You’ll then talk about family members in more depth and describe physical and personality traits.
Italians are known for their sartorial style and we’ll examine clothes shopping in detail – teaching you how to ask for different sizes and colours, and to try them on.
You will reinforce and consolidate the passato prossimo, and begin using reflexive verbs, and indirect pronouns.
This is an immersive course, taught mostly in Italian, so you’ll really hone your skills – particularly listening. It’s a truly authentic way to learn, giving you more confidence when chatting to fast-talking native speakers
