WHERE DOES THIS LEAD
ABC languages are nationally recognised qualifications and you can progress from this course to further studies, such as the GCSE and A levels. It is also a useful skill and qualification if you plan to travel or work in the tourist industry.
A little language goes a long way!
GCSE and A level are offered as part of the adult education programme, subject to recruitment
Italian is a subject you can start from scratch, so if you regret giving up languages at school, or if you started one and stopped before GCSE, why not take up Italian? This course will teach you the essential basics of everyday Italian for travel and to enhance your job prospects in the tourist industry. You will develop your language communication skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing so that you can interact with native speakers in the target language. Italian is a beautiful language which is growing in popularity and, as the world gets progressively smaller, there has never been a better time to get into languages.
In Italian you don’t always need the words to express yourself: gestures speak volumes.
The topics have a real world focus and are practical and relevant for travel and work using Italian – food, drink and shopping, daily living, work and education, healthy lifestyles, etc.
