General Italian Courses

Groups are perfect to study languages! Students are involved in task-based activities, which will help them to improve their actual use of the Italian language by doing and solving various tasks and problems in a fun and pleasant learning environment. The emphasis is on speaking, listening and reading tasks. We will also work on grammar, writing and pronunciation. Our course programs are organised following the standards of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

Autumn term courses start on September 20th

Calendar will be published at the end of August. 

We still don’t know whether we will be able to offer face-to-face classes or not but we will certainly be offering online courses. 

New Spring courses from April 26th to July 26th!

Our General Italian courses last 12 week and are held once per week. There will be a midterm break from June 7th to 11th and on May 3rd.

Online enrolment dates: Enrolment is now closed.

If you missed the enrolment period, please contact us via email and we will let you know if there are places available in the course of your choice.

For this term all our group courses are going to be held online via Zoom (min. 3 students, max. 7 students per group). Students will receive the Zoom link for classes via email before the beginning of the course (the link will be the same for all the classes of the course).

About ONLINE classes – For our online classes we use the videoconferencing platform Zoom. You need: An internet connection; a computer or I-Pad with built-in or plugged-in speakers, microphone and webcam. You do not have to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meeting. You will be prompted to download the software once you have clicked on the link that you will be provided. You may also wish to create an account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom meeting).
