Tutor/Facilitator Chris Wroe
Date: on/from Thu 8 Feb 2024 to end year
Class time: 1:00-3:00
Mary Kehoe Centre, Room 3
The use of a purchased course book is not envisaged, in the beginning at least. The tutor will devise class materials, comprising Italian culture and language and the course will include grammar and the exercise of reading, listening and speaking. Written production is a possibility – to be discussed. Audio-visual aids will be utilised and some excursions will be included in the 2024 program.
REQUIREMENTS: It is important that participants already have an intermediate level of Italian, being familiar with Italian grammatical structures at that level. Although revision of verb tenses and forms are ongoing, previous study of the following is assumed:
presente, futuro, imperfetto, passato prossimo
and preferably also: condizionale and imperativo
Participants should be able to attempt simple spontaneous conversation (shyness permitted and will be accommodated!) and also be able to follow simple listening exercises. A course book might be used as we progress through 2024.
TUTOR: Chris has a Master’s degree (and experience) in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and applies some similar strategies to teaching Italian. Although having passed some exams in Italian, she is not a native speaker of the language. She does, however, love all things Italian (even the bad bits are interesting!), especially the language.
