Breakthrough Stage
This stage is appropriate for the Beginner student who is a “Basic User" of Italian. 

This level is designed for those who are brand new to italian, studying the language formally for the first time, and/or for those who would like to strengthen whatever limited exposure to the language they have had in the past.  Their vocabulary and understanding of the language is restricted to perhaps a few key words and expressions, and they do not really have an idea about the grammar or how to use it in context. 


Upon completing the ‘Breakthrough' stage, a typical student should be able to:


  • understand and use familiar everyday expressions

  • use very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type       

  • introduce him/herself

  • ask and answer questions about personal details such as: where he/she lives, people he/she knows and things he/she has

  • interact in a simple way provided the other person speaks slowly, clearly, and is prepared to help

All of our lessons will continue to be conducted online. See our schedule here.
