The classes are designed to provide insight into the life and culture of Italian speaking people and to explore the rich variety of authentic Italian.
Who is the course aimed at?
I can use different tenses with confidence. I can construct sentences accurately with the correct word order and endings. I am confident to hold a conversation on a range of topics. I can understand clear native speech including some idiomatic language. I can read and understand texts from everyday sources, such as signs, newspapers, instructions etc. I am comfortable with the skills described above for level 4 but would like to develop my skills.
