Our Italian modules will be taught either face-to-face (in the classroom) or fully online – in real-time interactive virtual classes.
At the end of each semester-long module, there will be two online assessments: Reading & Writing and an Oral Assessment.
Please note: KLS assessments cannot be re-scheduled.
Please also note: a minimum of 10 students is required in order for a course to run. Should any course not recruit enough students, it will be cancelled.
This module aims to give students a basic knowledge of reading, listening, spoken and written skills in a dynamic and communicative way, through individual, pair and group work and studio-based and authentic texts. The focus is on accuracy as well as communication.
There are two groups in Level 1: Group 1 will be taught entirely online – real-time interactive virtual classes via MS Teams and Group 2 will be delivered face-to-face at Penrhyn Road.
