Italian for Travellers – Summer School

Three hours a day for five days and the outcome is that at the end of that week, with a bit of homework from the students themselves, they will be able to talk in small, simple but intelligible sentences to any Italian anywhere in Italy who will in turn, be able to understand them.

I emphasise pronunciation then we organically use the language itself to reveal the grammar which will then be taught in a palatable way. And we have fun doing it!

Arrivederci per adesso. (Bye for now).
