This group is for members who would like to develop their use of Italian. A basic conversational level of Italian is desirable.
The main aim of the group is to enable participants to use the Italian which they have already acquired, to maintain that level and to improve on it through the activities of the group.
Members will participate by sharing and exploring areas of interest, expertise, experience and even future plans related to Italy through the medium of the Italian language. Members will be encouraged to make their own suggestions but some examples of themes or topics might include - cities, food, cinema, regions, the Medici, literature etc.. It’s open-ended. To support this there will be language input as required.
We will need a minimum of 4 members up to a maximum of 9 to run.
The group will meet via Zoom every Wednesday, at 16.00 for a 40 minute session.
It is important that members are committed to using Italian, maybe not exclusively but as nearly as possible.
Course Leader: ‘I am a language teacher and a fluent Italian speaker, but I am not a teacher of Italian. As such I am able to provide language support and do have experts on hand to consult in case of need. In the light of this we will all have to nurture our independent learning skills’.
