Coffee Break Italian – What you will learn

In this short episode, Mark outlines the structure of the Coffee Break Italian course. Season 1 is organised into four blocks of ten lessons:

  • Lessons 1-10: you’ll be learning how to greet people, introduce yourself, talk about where you’re from, introduce your friends or members of your family, use Italian in basic travel situations like buying things, getting around and coping with language difficulties;
  • Lessons 11-20: you’ll learn more travel language and will be able to order drinks and food, check into hotels, go shopping, ask for information and use public transport;
  • Lessons 21-30: you’ll perfect your travel language, learn to deal with a visit to the doctor or pharmacy in Italy, use the phone, and also talk more about yourself, your job, and your hobbies and pastimes;
  • Lessons 31-40: we’ll be recording these episodes in Italy and you’ll join us in a series of conversations putting all the language you’ve covered so far into practice and extending your vocabulary and understanding of Italian grammar.
