Full-Immersion in Italy – Italian Courses
You’ve been there. You travel to Italy armed with the best intentions, this is the year that you are going to crack the language, put all your hours of diligent study to the test and conduct long and meaningful conversations in Italian.
You find an unsuspecting guinea pig (your landlady, a taxi driver, some guy in the street) and you ask your first question in perfect Italian. The problem is, your opening line was so successful that your Italian interlocutor answers back at 100 miles an hour and within a few seconds you are lost. In fact, some of the words sound positively “foreign”. Is this person really speaking la lingua del sì?
Learning a language is a rewarding challenge, but interacting with the natives can be frustrating: quite apart from the speed with which they fire their sentences, most seem to get away with a blatant disregard of those annoying grammar rules you spent hours trying to figure out. Not to mention the use of colourful but incomprehensible regional expressions and dialect.
We know, we understand! So at 121 Italian Tuition, we organise intensive language courses with a difference: the teachers accompany the students on all their excursions, cultural and social activities and trips to ensure maximum opportunity to interact with the locals with the support, encouragement and explanation that only a qualified professional can afford.
Whatever your level, the teacher will ensure that class activities and cultural, social or sports events are seamlessly linked, so that vocabulary and language structures are presented in a real-life and relevant context and then immediately re-used in practice.
