Do you want to be able to use your Italian in a range of real life situations? Then this Italian Intermediate course which focus on helping you to gain the tools to be more confident in speaking the langauge would be perfect.
You will benefit from being in a classroom, from exchanging face to face with a supportive tutor and others as you practise speaking and enjoy learning the language.
Successful students will be able to:
• Describe (people, places, situations, events etc) using present, past and future
• Express an opinion and ideas in taking part in discussions
• Deal with emergencies, problems and complaints
Grammar will be expanded within the topic of the lesson. You will be given small amounts of homework (1 hour max) each week to reinforce classroom learning.
How will I be taught?
The focus will be on oral communication (speaking and listening) there will be some reading and writing but the core of the course is for the communication. Pronunciation and Italian culture are an integral part of the course. The course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. Learners will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (role-play and games etc). Homework set will provide an opportunity for self study to reinforce learning.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student's starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets will be set. This will be revisited from time to time during the course to monitor and record progress. Tutors will mark homework and give written or verbal feedback.
What do I need to have with me?
The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. Students will need to bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session.
What can I do next?
An extension of this course can be discusses with the tutor and priced according to the number of students. The appropriate follow-on course is an Intermediate Plus course. The tutor or the curriculum leader will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
