The new term at Croydon’s ground-breaking and widely admired adult learning scheme, CALAT, begins in a few weeks, offering a broad range of classes and skills.
There are plenty of language classes for beginners, but much harder to find one for people who already have a good grounding. CALAT’s lower advanced Italian class would suit people who have done a GCSE or O Level, or spent some time living in Italy, and would like to develop or at any rate keep up their language skills.
The class is taught almost entirely in Italian by a native Italian speaker and focuses on developing speaking and comprehension – the skills you’ll need as a visitor to Italy – alongside aspects of Italian life and culture. The class is made up of a really friendly group of people, and the teacher is encouraging and supportive.
It is possible to arrange to come for a trial session before committing to the whole course. Anyone interested would need to contact CALAT directly to arrange that.
Lower advanced Italian has a course code of CTL549-17.
The course is held on Wednesday evenings from 7pm at the CALAT Centre in the Clocktower, central Croydon. There are three terms of 10 weeks each, with a break for half term. The next term starts on September 27 with its final session is on December 6th.
The cost per term is £140 but concessionary prices are available.
