  • highly-qualified and experienced teachers

Being masters of Italian they will help you to become familiar with the nuances of the Italian grammar and lexis. They will also create wonderful and comfortable atmosphere in class, which will boost your progress.

  • communicative method of teaching with teachers’ own unique material

In teaching Italian we focus on developing speaking and listening skills. Therefore all classes include a lot of various communicative activities (discussion in pairs and in groups, role plays, dramatizations, and dialogues) and topic-based listening activities. The Grammar of the course is also structured according to the communicative approach. It is presented not as a set of rules to learn by heart but as a set of grammatical patterns necessary for a certain real-life situation. Each new grammatical pattern is practiced in various oral exercises such as monologues, dialogues, group discussions. Reading skills are acquired through reading activities, starting with reading easy texts at the beginning level and up to authentic texts from Italian press and extracts from original literature at higher levels.

General Conversation Italian Course is divided into 3 levels (see the chart). You can assess your level by taking our placement test either on-line or at the Tom’s House head office.
