Italian Advanced Conversation (B2-C1)

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.

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.

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.
