Italian Beginners

Italian Stage 1

 

Italian Beginners

Thursday 1:30-2:15 (45mins) Beginners Italian, near the Barbican (start date Thursday May 23rd)

This is for beginners. We'll aim to cover the following subjects: we'll learn how to say who you are, where you live, what your job is, and talk about your family. We'll look at how to buy clothes in a shop, book into a hotel, get out of an airport, and how to order food in a restaurant.

As far as the grammar is concerned we'll look at singular and plural, masculine, feminine, and the present tense. If things go quickly, we may look at the past tense too. The main emphasis will be on speaking the language, so that you can go to the country, and make your way around.

Italian Beginners Plus

This is for beginners and for people who have done a little before. I do find if people have a basis in another Latin language, and are willing to do some preparatory work, they can join a class that has been going a term or so.

We might have a go at things like Italian twenty questions, and learn some songs and sayings.

 



We recommend you email Susan to get an idea as to exactly what the best level is for you. If you would like to enrol please contact us. 

 

Testimonials

 "I have been meaning to learn Italian for over 20 years; having beginner classes in the HSBC Tower has finally meant I can begin. They are pitched at just the right level with likeminded linguists learning beside me."

(James Young, HSBC)

"The thing I found most rewarding about the class was the opportunity to learn grammar and conversational Italian, which you would never glean from something like Duolingo."

(Isabelle, NRF)

'A good way of enhancing your language skills in the convenience of the workplace''

“I really enjoyed studying Italian with Susan, the standard of teaching was very good and it was extremely convenient being within the office”.

(Tom, NRF)

(Mark, Motion, HSBC)

"I enjoy Susan’s classes because they are conducted in a warm friendly environment where participation is key but constructed so everyone has equal opportunity to participate and everyone in the class helps each other throughout the sessions. Her explanation of the language, how it is/can be interpreted and how it relates to everyday life really helps in the understanding and builds a foundation to learn a new language."

(Ben Brinkman, Global Banking and Markets)

"Just a brief email to say thank you for the wonderful Italian classes you have been running. I’m looking forward to continuing next term and to practising my Italian when I go to Italy this summer."
(Alexandra, Partner, Anthony Gold)

"I am coming to the end of my first team of learning beginners level Italian with Susan and have enjoyed it so much I have already signed up for the next term! The lessons are informal and fun. Susan is an excellent teacher who works at the pace of the class and I have learnt a lot in just a few weeks. I am looking forward to my Italian holiday to put my new found knowledge into practice."
(Elise, PwC)

"I started the basic Italian course with Susan a year ago and I have found it a fun and very useful course. It is a great way to meet with like-minded people and to gain reassurance that you really are speaking the language! Susan is very knowledgeable and always happy to change the pace of the course to suit the student’s needs, and answer any technical questions that you may have. Learning with Susan has given me the confidence to go and find a language exchange partner to further my learning. I would not hesitate to recommend these language courses to anyone at any level"
(Esther, Accountant, London)
