Course Overview

Conversational Italian,” the natural progression from Beginners/Holiday Italian, it unlocks a world of linguistic and cultural wonders. This course bridges the gap between rudimentary language skills and the ability to engage in meaningful conversations with native Italian speakers. With an emphasis on practical communication, students learn to confidently express themselves in everyday scenarios, from ordering a cappuccino at a local caf‚ to discussing their hobbies and travel plans. By honing their listening and speaking skills, participants gain the fluency needed to navigate Italian-speaking environments with ease. “Conversational Italian” invites learners to immerse themselves in the beauty of Italian culture through language, forging connections and broadening horizons in the process.

Course Requirements

This is not a beginners course and you must, therefore, have a basic knowledge of Italian.

What you will Learn

The topics covered will include daily routine, hobbies, likes and dislikes, accommodation and tourist information and may be adapted to suit the students’ personal interests.


Students will be required to practice their language skills at home and away from the college.


Students may consider progressing onto a more advance recreational course, for example, Italian Life.

Career Options

Completing a short Conversational Italian course can provide you with a basic understanding of the language and potentially open up various opportunities, especially if you plan to leverage your language skills in your career. While a short course may not make you fluent, it can still be a valuable addition to your skillset. Here are some potential career options after completing such a course:

Tourism and Hospitality: If you are interested in the travel industry, your conversational Italian skills can be beneficial for roles in hotels, restaurants, and tourism companies, where you interact with Italian-speaking tourists.

Sales and Marketing: International companies often seek individuals with language skills to expand their market into Italian-speaking regions. You could work in sales, marketing, or account management.

Language Tutor: If you further develop your Italian language skills, you can consider offering private tutoring services or teaching conversational Italian to others.

Cultural Exchange Programs: Some organisations offer cultural exchange programs or language assistant positions, where you can assist Italian learners or immerse yourself in the language and culture.

Freelance Translation or Interpretation: While more advanced language skills are typically required for professional translation and interpretation, your basic knowledge can be a starting point for freelance work.

Enhanced Communication Skills: Even if your career doesn’t directly involve Italian, improved communication skills can benefit you in any job that requires effective communication and interaction with people.
