Languages – Italian
BENVENUTI! Italian at King Edward’s is an option for students in the Third Year.
This beginner’s course gives learners a feel for the sounds and flow of the language, develops competence in grammar, and introduces vocabulary for everyday topics. Following a successful first year, students can continue their study of Italian to GCSE. Whilst a challenging course, it is an excellent opportunity for keen linguists who wish to build on their knowledge of languages and Latin.
Italian is taught in a communicative and exciting way, and the language is used for instruction and communication, as far as is practicable. The courses are topic based, but equally focus on excellent grammar acquisition and skill development, and all students are encouraged to participate actively. An awareness of tradition and culture of the country is also fostered.
