Overview

##

Have you been dreaming of visiting cities like Venice, Rome and Florence? Have you always wanted to learn Italian and get to know Italian culture? If so, this course is perfect for you.

Over six weeks you’ll develop the skills to interact in common conversational situations. You’ll learn how to introduce yourself, answer simple questions, ask for information, and talk about your interests, food and clothes.

You’ll develop your listening and speaking skills through watching short videos which introduce sentences frequently used in spoken Italian as well as vocabulary and grammar patterns.

The course is for people who have little or no prior knowledge of Italian and who are interested in discovering Italian language and culture.

Wolfgang completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Nicely done. The dialogues are interesting, the teachers are committed. Only the summary in English I would change. Give a summary of the vocabulary, the phrases, the grammar construction learned.

Buon lavoro.

This course is well organized and offers a good amount of words and sentences. The articles on the Italian cultural background are interesting -- fascinating. Un cappuccino or un caffelatte, anyone?
