This course is a consolidation of all learnt from Beginner 1 to Beginner 3 and more.  We will be practising more verbs ending in -are, – ere, -ire ( also verbs in -ire that take isc  i.e.: capisco, finisco)

We will learn about how to make a comparison

We will revise modal verbs (potere, volere, dovere) and similar verbs such as  piacere and  sapere and  learn the difference between sapere e conoscere ( both translated as to know)

We will revise reflexive verbs, for example divertirsi – to enjoy onself

We will learn something new: adverbs (always, often, etc)

We will be able to say what belongs to whom – Possessive adjectives ‘my’

Some idiomatic expressions such as ‘avere la pelle d’oca’ (to have goosbumps), ‘in bocca al lupo’ (good luck)

We will cover topics including health and pets.

By the end of this course you should be confident speaking in the present tense.

Ciao! I am Mariagrazia (or Maria) and I come from the beautiful prosecco region, in the North East of Italy. I have now lived in Lichfield for 20 years, which makes it my second home.
After obtaining the Cambridge University Proficiency in English I came to the UK for work experience which led me to job opportunities in Lichfield. I was so lucky to discover such a marvellous place!

I decided to stay a little bit longer; I studied Modern Languages and Social Sciences with the Open University and obtained the London Trinity TESOL. After working in EU-funded projects for 17 years I have decided to share my passion for my own language and culture with whoever has a desire to explore Italy and its enormous cultural heritage!

I look forward to meeting you!
