Intermediate Italian Plus

Wednesday, 6:30-8:30pm (see calendar below)

This course is designed for those who already have a good knowledge of Italian grammar and can conduct a fair conversation on most topics. By studying more complex grammatical structures, idiomatic expressions and refined vocabulary, students in this course will achieve improvement in comprehension and conversation. The ability of communicating will be mostly developed through group discussions on various topics. Students are expected to use all tenses of verbs. Lessons aim to develop confidence in speaking, using the textbook as a guiding tool.

Only Italian is spoken by the teacher and among students in class. A preliminary telephone conversation is recommended to determine if the student's language skill is appropriate to be part of this group.

This course will start on September 18, 2019

Teacher: Michele

9 weekly lessons on Wednesdays, 6:30-8:30pm
