Italian with Graphic Novels "L'italiano con i fumetti": Italian Lower-Intermediate (A1/A2)

2 days - 1 original graphic novel! “A picture is worth a thousand words”. Learning Italian with graphic novels is more than a fun way to learn. Italians adore their fumetti (the Italian word for graphic novels or comics, literally translated to “little puffs of smoke” after the speech bubbles). Students can read Italian with this series of graded graphic novels, a great way to see dialogue in action, as well as build vocabulary and reading comprehension. Each story is followed by activities and an online animated version complete with professional voice actors, music and sound effects. Intermediate level, 120 plus hours of prior learning assumed, or completed up to Units 2 & 3 “Nuovo Espresso” Book 2. No textbook required.

This class will be delivered face-to-face at WEA Sydney. Enrolling students need to ensure they have read the current COVID-19 Safety Guidance that WEA Sydney has put in place before enrolling.
