What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

The course is based on the communicative approach:

- active students’ interaction

- use of realia, pictures and authentic material
- use of audio-visual techniques when appropriate

Please note, students are expected to participate in oral classroom activities and to do some homework as and when required.

A good class, very well taught, which would be a 5* if it weren't quite such a mix of student ability

Great class and continuation from Italian 3: Module 3.

By the time you get to this course, you will have studied just about all of the main grammatical structures/tenses, etc - so this course (for me) was really about consolidating that knowledge, developing fluency and accuracy in interesting and useful contexts.
