Italian for Travellers

This course has no current classes. Please join the waiting list.

Mastering the basics of foreign language conversation is easier than you think.

Learn how to ask simple questions, talk about yourself, make enquiries and socialise. By the end of the course, with proper application and practice, you should be able to make yourself understood by a native speaker. The aim of this course is to prepare a person to travel in Italy and/or to better know this interesting country. Offering practical advice (about accommodation, public transport, currency, medical/doctor/chemist situations, food and eating out or in etc). Through slides and short videos, the tutor will show you a gallery of interesting places and food you should try in Italy. This course also provides an overview of Italian ways of living and culture and a basic knowledge of the language, including useful words and phrases you will encounter in real-life situations on your travels through Italy.

The tutor is a native Italian teacher recently arrived in Newcastle.
