Available Classes

This course is a continuation from Italian Advanced Conclusion and is for students who feel relatively at ease expressing themselves in Italian and wish to extend and maintain their competency for business, travel or everyday use with approximately 320 hours of Italian required. Students will have the opportunity to focus on specific skills, such as extending vocabulary in given areas, improving written language, developing a better understanding of particular cultural and social issues in the target language. The whole class is conducted in Italian with conversation as the focal point. This course aims to build general advanced comprehension and communication skills in Italian and a review of cultural practices, with a focus on clear explanation of higher level language principles.


  • Face-to-Face / Online


  • Tutor supplied material including short films, literature, grammar, art, history or geography.


By the end of this course, students should be able to:
Level B2

  1. Understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation.
  2. Interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party.
  3. Produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.

Level C1

  1. Understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning.
  2. Express him/herself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions.
  3. Use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes.
  4. Produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.


If you are a new WEA Student and enrol into a language class and subsequently find that you are at the wrong level (whether too high or too low), you are permitted to transfer into another more suitable class at no additional cost, provided that the request is made within the first two classes and is in writing from your tutor directly to the Education Manager. After that point, an administration fee of $30 will apply.
