Italian for Beginners

Learn conversational Italian in four weeks.

This is an interactive, live course run via Zoom. There is no better way to learn than through a native speaker!

Learning is done by listening and repeating words and expressions modeled by the teacher as well as dialogues, questions and answers. In addition to oral practice, the student does written exercises in class and after class as homework.

Objective

Communicate in Italian language at a basic level.

Benefits

• Ability to communicate in another language.
• Knowledge of the culture of another country.
• Greater openness to the world and international vision.
• Development of neuronal plasticity through the acquisition and implementation of new knowledge.

Methodology

This is an active class requiring participation from the student, whether listening, speaking, reading, or writing. In addition to our interaction, I will present texts and other materials through Zoom.

Each new lesson begins with a review of the previous one, continues with a new topic and ends with the written and oral practice of what has been studied. Work at home will be encouraged as the best way to reinforce what they have learned.

Structure and materials

The course will consist of eight sessions total, meeting twice a week for a month.

All you need is a pen & paper, and a ready mind!

Teacher's Bio: I love teaching Italian language. I've taught Italian for more than 10 years and my students have always succeded learning the language. I started studying Italian when I was 14 because my mother tongue is Spanish. It was so much fun! I fell in love with the language and I won a contest about Italian culture and language in 1994. In 2002 I went to Italy to take advanced courses of phonetics, grammar, literature and history of the language at the University of Perugia. When I came back I moved to Cusco and became an Italian teacher. It makes me happy to see how the world becomes bigger and beautiful for people who learn a foreign language. Learning a new language is good not only for your brains, but for your soul. This is the reason why I’d like to continue doing this for many years to come.
