CEFR Definition

For students joining this class during the Summer term, please note that it was a beginners’ class at the start of the year in September, 2022. Tutors will help you to catch up but it will be clear that other students in the class will have advanced beyond complete beginners. 

You will be introduced to basic grammatical rules and gain an insight into the culture and customs of Italy. A variety of teaching methods will be used to give you the opportunity to use the language. You will be encouraged to interact with your fellow students in group work and role play.

Topic areas will include:
Introducing yourself and saying where you come from; talking about your family and yourself; describing and comparing people and things; talking about hobbies, holidays and the weather; likes and dislikes; ordering and buying food and drink; asking simple questions

Students will need to purchase the text book:
‘Nuovo Espresso 1- libro dello studente’ by Luciano Ziglio.
Publisher: Alma Edizioni (the book can be purchased with or without DVD)
