Beginners (A1)

We will focus on concrete communicative situations you might face on a trip to Italy, such as first contact questions/answers to get to know an Italian person, interaction in a restaurant and how meals work in Italy (very important!) or in a grocery or clothes shop, understanding and formulating a cooking recipe or giving/receiving other instructions, asking for directions or complaining about the weather to start a random conversation at a bus stop, among other things. Through realistic dialogues we will introduce the linguistic (structure and vocabulary) and pragmatic (intonation, gestures) elements to handle these concrete situations and produce our own messages.
