Italian for Adults

Learn the language of love: learn Italian!


Spring term dates: 8th January – 20th April 2018

13 weeks – BOOK IN ADVANCE!

(Half term break 12th -16th February, and Easter break 31st March – 8th April) 

Our courses are based on conversation with structured grammar, thus enabling students to master the Italian language faster in a natural and congenial environment. During the course, teachers use YouTube, projectors and other contemporary material to introduce Italian language and culture.

A communication based approach, including role play activities, facilitates Italian conversation among the students who participate actively and enjoy our lessons.

‘Thank you La Dante! I didn’t know a single word of Italian on day 1 but now, after my lessons,  I have a strong understanding of the basics. My Italian teacher was very patient and her lessons were well structured so we made excellent progress in each session. Her activities were engaging and she made me feel very comfortable learning something that was taking me out of my comfort zone. Not only have a learnt a lot, I feel I have made a friend. I am really looking forward to coming back for more lessons and becoming part of the La Dante family’

‘I was so impressed by the level the students had reached given that they had been studying for such a short space of time. This is obviously due to the high standard of teaching that you provide.’
