Who is this course for?

This course is for participants at a pre-intermediate level of Italian at CEFR level A2/B1. During the course, we work towards level B1. The course is taught in Italian as much as possible,with explanations provided in Dutch or English depending on the group participants. It is therefore important that you have a good command of English in order to participate in the course.

If you are unsure whether this level is right for you, you can test yourself online using the placement test! Alternatively, make an appointment for the online consultation to get personal advice from our teacher.

What will you learn in this course?

The course consists of 12 lessons of two hours each, during which the following will be covered:

  • Grammar such as past subjunctive, reflexive form, imperfect subjunctive, indirect speech
  • Expanding your vocabulary on topics such as daily routines and habits, health and well-being, work and education, relationships and social interactions, environmental issues, current events and cultural diversity

The actual content may vary, but the aim is to provide a solid foundation for effective communication in Italian and expand your language skills. The course will be more focused on listening and speaking, and we will use podcasts, reading and comprehension exercises, presentations and debates in class.

How many hours of independent study are required?

To keep up with the course, you will have to spend about 30 hours in total on independent study. Independent study will often entail writing assignments in which you will use the vocabulary and grammar that you have learned during the course. We will also use those writing assignments in class to further discuss this topic and improve your oral fluency.

Remember, language learning is a continuous process, and reaching the B1 level is a significant achievement. To further improve your skills, it is recommended to continue practising Italian through conversations with native speakers whenever possible, reading Italian texts, watching Italian movies or TV shows, and engaging in other immersive activities.

What will you be able to do after the course?
  • You will be able to speak more fluently and confidently when having conversations in Italian and you will be able to follow conversations at a natural pace
  • You will be able to understand longer and more challenging written texts, such as articles, short stories, and simple novels
  • You will learn to write more complex and coherent texts, including emails, letters, and short essays
  • As you progress to the B1 level, you will gain a deeper understanding of Italian culture, customs, traditions, and social etiquette
Course material

There is no book requested for this course. Course material will be provided during the lessons.

Rosetta Stone

A Rosetta Stone independent study account is a great tool to use alongside the course. You can also use it to keep working on your language skills even after the course has finished. Please note that a Rosetta Stone account is not compulsory for the course and will not be used by the teacher, but it can give your language learning an extra boost!
