Description

Our new conversation courses offer an ideal occasion for students to strengthen their understanding of the Italian language and to improve their listening and comprehension skills, while conversing in Italian and gaining self-confidence in conversation. The aim of these courses is to enable students to express themselves with ease in a variety of situations, from simple and informal to more complex and formal, in the context of everyday life, while socializing and traveling.

Each lesson is structured around a specific topic that fosters interaction among the students and the learning of new vocabulary and expressions. A vast array of activities oriented towards the development and the solidifying of oral communication skills will be proposed to the students: audiovisual material to enhance listening skills as well as educational activities and role play to sharpen accuracy and fluency in verbal expression. Authentic materials, written texts, multimedia content, grammatical charts and pronunciation exercises enrich each lesson.

No book required for this class.  Printed materials will be provided.  For those who have completed study through the B1.3 level.
