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.

   New online courses from April 27th and

New Beginners course from May 26th!

Even though Piccola accademia di italiano is still closed, we are happy to announce our new online courses for those of you who wish to continue with your language studies!

Special short term of 6 week from April 27th to June 8th (no class will be held on Bank holiday Monday June 1st) 

Special short term of 6 week for Beginners from May 26th to June 30th.

Courses will last 6 weeks (instead of our usual 12 week courses) and will take place once per week, for 1.5 hours. All our groups are limited to 8 students.

For our online classes we use the videoconferencing platform Zoom. The teacher sends a link to students every week to connect with the class. 
You need: a computer or I-Pad and an internet connection (you can also join the meeting with your Smartphone but it would be easier with your computer).
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 have been provided. You may also wish to create an account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom meeting).

Can introduce him/herself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people he/she knows and things he/she has.

Can produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest.

B2 (Upper intermediate) The student can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation.
