Develop your language and intercultural skills

We regret that our 10-week Italian courses are not running in Semester 1 2022/23. We hope to resume the courses in Semester 2.

In addition to our courses, there are opportunities to develop your language and intercultural skills informally with other students through Peer Assisted Learning.

We offer 3 course levels in Italian, beginner, lower intermediate and advanced.
