Learn Italian through Cinema: Impara l’italiano con i film

After six years of sold out sessions, the Italian Cinema Workshop is back in a new online version.

This short, online course is designed for intermediate and upper-intermediate students of Italian. It is aimed at students who wish to expand their knowledge of Italian cinema while improving their language skills. Students will be introduced to one new film each lesson. Through watching and discussing extracts from each film, students will develop a critical understanding of popular culture and Italian society. There will be a chance to practise all four language skills (speaking, reading, listening and writing), with emphasis on speaking. Students will also be offered extra content, guidance in self-study and be set optional homework tasks based on the film after each session. 

Tips and tricks for joining the online cinema workshop:  the workshops take place via video call, so check your internet and find the perfect, quiet spot in the house with a strong internet connection. We use Zoom (a video chatting service that’s easy to set up and use), and you will receive an invitation following enrolment. Make sure you use a good headset or computer audio with a microphone. Finally, before each lesson you will receive a word document with all the activities via email. Make sure you have a quick look at this in advance.

Duration of each workshop: 2.5 hours live session + extra content (video, articles and activities selected by the teacher)

When: 24 – 25 October from 1.30pm

Fee: £35 for one workshop / £ 60 for two workshops
