Advanced Italian

This course is designed for those who have already mastered Italian, have studied for at least two years at our school or have lived in Italy and want to maintain their fluency. The goal is improvement of the spoken language, by reviewing advanced grammar structures, expressions and refined vocabulary. The lessons will also be developed  through conversation on various topics. Aspects of Italian culture may be addressed. The teacher may focus on particular points, useful to espress preferences, opinions and hypothesis.

Only Italian is spoken in class. A preliminary telephone conversation must be conducted to make sure that the student is fluent in italian and can carry a dialogue without hesitation. Conversation is impromptu and moderated by the teacher.
