Conversation 1 online – Wednesday evenings

Conversation 1 is the best way to improve oral fluency through conversational practice. 

Teachers will bring new topics to discuss every week and will prompt the conversation in different ways such as a selection of guided conversations in Italian, questions, and brief exercises relating to contemporary Italy, taken from different sources (short readings, websites, videos, music, etc.) that will help you to gain more self-confidence.

Spoken accuracy and fluency are the focus of this course, but the teacher will signal and correct the main grammar mistakes too and will be at the student’s disposal in case there is a need to clarify some concepts to improve learners’ accuracy while speaking.

Completion of the Beginner 3 Course is recommended.

 

What you will learn

  • Students will expand their vocabulary in a way that will benefit both general conversation and discussion of specific topics 
  • Students will familiarize themselves with a variety of current issues relating to Italy 
  • Students will develop their communicative skills in Italian through discussion of several topics, ranging from social and political issues to media, pop culture, films, music, fashion, food, and sports
