Italian Intensive Weekend - Intermediate



Have completed a course near or at AS level/B1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. This group, being fairly conversant with some grammar structures and vocabulary, will be able to participate in conversations relating to personal interest or pertinent to everyday life, e.g. work, hobbies, travel, current events and health. Should feel confident in dealing with more elaborate descriptions, giving brief reasons for opinions and plans, and coping with a range of social situations. You can expect to consolidate verb forms such as past, conditional and present subjunctive and use a wider range of vocabulary.

Do you want to give your Italian a boost?  
Come and join us for an interactive and fun language weekend!  Nine hours of face-to-face teaching in small group classes limited to 14.

With six different levels to choose from, take this opportunity to become more confident by practising and consolidating your oral skills in Italian.
