Italian language courses


Learn Italian with the University of Oxford

Running for 20 weeks, the Department offers students a range of Italian language courses to be studied at either Oxford and Reading. Designed to help students from beginner level to advanced, to improve their understanding of, and confidence speaking the Italian language.

Our classes either take place during the day or in the evenings, which then run for twenty weeks, for a duration two terms. We offer classes at levels 1-6 in Oxford (including levels 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B) and at levels 1-4 in Reading. In Oxford you can also take Upper Intermediate and Advanced Conversation classes. Class sizes are limited to a maximum of fifteen students, ensuring you get the attention you deserve.

Italian Intensive Weekends are offered for those who wish to quickly refresh their existing knowledge of the language over a much shorter period of time.

All our classes are developed in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
