ONLINE ITALIAN LESSONS


Are you a business owner planning to enter the Italian market? Would you like to enhance your professional skills? Would you like to visit Italy soon and make the most out of your experience? Then, acquiring the Italian language will certainly come in handy. Sign up for an online Italian course with us at Listen & Learn and you'll become fluent in a short time with fun, motivating lessons.

 

What will you learn with us?

If you haven't studied Italian in the past, we'll get you started with a Survival Italian course. Throughout, you'll learn basic grammar and expressions, like greetings (ciao, salve!, buona sera), polite requests (per favore, scusi) or ways of saying thank you (grazie, grazie tanti). Graduates of this course and more advanced speakers will then continue with a tailor-made programme designed to suit each student’s needs and schedule.

All our courses follow the communicative approach, so your teacher will expose to the language from the very beginning. Our tutors are native speakers of Italian, meaning you will start improving your speaking and listening skills from the very first lesson. Plus, we use fun, real-life materials, like movies, TV series, books, games or songs, so you always feel motivated to study. Just talk to your teacher and tell them if you want your lessons to be planned around studying the works of great singers, like Laura Pausini or Tiziano Ferro, or if you'd like to read Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy in its original language. We adapt to you!
