Introduction:

Learning a foreign language is a wonderful opportunity to not only learn the language itself, but also to reveal different perspectives on life, enabling you to explore new cultures through a different lens.

Our courses are more than just engaging classroom sessions supported by excellent online resources.

You’ll also have the option to take assessments and be awarded a Nottingham Trent University (NTU) Language Programme Certificate of Achievement.

If you continue to study with us, you may become eligible for a Certificate of Language Learning or Diploma of Language Learning (or the UNILANG Certificate).

You can find more details about these awards at www.ntu.ac.uk/ulp

You’ll also be able to communicate at a basic level when you are in restaurants and in hotels.

During the course you’ll learn about life in Italian-speaking countries, food, health, jobs, and how to talk about your childhood.

At the end of the course, you’ll have deepened your appreciation of Italian grammar and structures at an elementary level and you’ll be able to make comparisons, and talk about past events.

Italian stage 4 is the right stage for you if you’ve an intermediate knowledge of the language (e.g. A level grade D or E).

During the course you’ll study topics relating, for example, to Italian-made products, family, festivities, and the media.

At the end of the course, you’ll be able to talk about your intentions and wishes and events in the past.
