Course description

Learn Italian in Sydney with this beginner’s class.

Whether you want to learn Italian language for business, travel or just for fun, you’ll learn the basics at this informal, practical and interactive course in the Sydney CBD.

You probably already speak a little Italian – we have that language to thank for many common words in music, food, art and science. Italian is pronounced how it’s written, so once you’ve learned the sounds and mastered the sing-song intonation, Italian is a fun and relatively easy language to learn. This Level 1 course will teach you how to communicate in Italian with simple vocabulary and basic sentences.

This course is suitable for:
Students with no previous learning in Italian

Learning objectives

By the end of this Italian Beginners Class, you will have learned how to:

  • greet others and introduce yourself
  • give and request personal details such as phone numbers and addresses
  • count in Italian, as well as know the larger numbers
  • order and pay for food and drink at a bar or restaurant
  • ask simple questions (such as who, when, where, etc)
  • say the days of the week, months and seasons, weather, etc
  • say the names of different countries, nationalities and locations
  • ask for and tell the time
  • express things you like and dislike
  • express agreement and disagreement
  • book accommodation and travel.

The curriculum may be adapted slightly to suit the needs of the class. The topics above will be covered during this course, but not necessarily in the order given.

Textbook for Levels 1 and 2

Please purchase the course textbook and bring it to each class:

Buongiorno Italia!
ISBN 9780563519454

The textbook costs approximately $55. You may also choose to purchase the audio CD pack for use at home, but this is optional. Your tutor will have the CDs for use in class.

You can purchase the textbook from Abbeys Bookstore (131 York Street, Sydney). It is close to the CBD campus and offers a 10% discount to Sydney Community College students.
Please note: sometimes a course start date is postponed until there are enough enrolments. It is therefore wise to purchase your textbook after your course has been confirmed (usually within three working days of the proposed start).

What to bring to class

Please bring your textbook, a notebook and pen to every class.

Avoid disappointment. Enrol early.

Please ensure that you have given a valid email and mobile number as course changes will be communicated via sms or email.

Course testimonials:

  • Kiera said: Joe is a terrific teacher - focused, energetic and engaging with a great sense of humour. He alternated his teaching to accommodate for our different learning strengths and maintained a positive atmosphere in the class as well as a warm and friendly professionalism.

  • Vicki said: Toilets on a different floor inconvenient not having access to building if you exit in a break not acceptable need to provide a warning also give students a code the after hours phone number not answered. The course delivered by Joe was of highest standard but venue failed.

  • Maria said: Really enjoyed the course. Claudio is a great teacher, well prepared, engaging and entertaining (keeps you interested). 5 out of 5 for all 3 above
