Italian Improvers: Maria Taverna

"This course helps you build on skills already learnt, introducing new language and grammar structures in a lively way. The emphasis is on communication; to understand, speak and read most of the Italian you are likely to need, whether you are travelling to Italy on holiday, welcoming Italian people to your home or simply studying for general interest."
