Tutored Intermediate 1 - Program and objectives

In this tutored course you get to know more of Italian culture and you become familiar with Italian topics such as Opera, Art, Cinema and others. You learn how to better express your opinions, understand more complex sentences, make comparisons, narrate a fact with different kinds of past, use the future, use pronouns, relate situations, read Italian newspapers, watch Italian videos and visit some recommended Italian websites.


Upon successful completion of the Intermediate 1 you should be able to "...understand the main points of clear standard speech on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc. ... understand the main point of many radio or TV programs when the delivery is relatively slow and clear... deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken. You can enter unprepared into conversation on topics that are familiar, of personal interest or pertinent to everyday life (e.g. family, hobbies, work, travel and current events)... connect phrases in a simple way in order to describe experiences and events, your dreams, hopes and ambitions. Briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans. Narrate a story or relate the plot of a book or film and describe your reactions" (standard definition taken from the Common European Framework Self-Evaluation).
