What’s the content of Italian A2.1?

This course is a continuation of the course Italian A1. During this course you will continue with the previously learned topics of the Italian language, with emphasis on reading, speaking, listening and writing skills in an everyday context. Topics that are covered include:

  • introducing yourself and others;

  • express preferences;

  • apply the learned grammatical knowledge (including possessive and passive nouns, imperfetto indicativo of regular and irregular verbs);

By the end of the course, you will have a small vocabulary to be able to communicate orally and in writing about personal topics and in common and everyday situations. The final level of the course is A2.1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
