This course is ideal for students who have never before studied Italian or know just a few words or phrases.

Learn this beautiful language and the culture in an interactive way, with role-plays, listening, and a wide range of learning materials—from innovative textbooks to songs, video extracts, and games. We will also discuss Italian culture and traditions, because language and culture are strongly intertwined.

I have thoroughly enjoyed learning Italian with Elena in Beginners 1 so much so I have booked private lessons over the holiday period so I can jump a couple of levels when class resumes on 1 Feb 2021. Definitely worth the money. I have done classes with Mosman Community College in the past but students were generally there for fun and there was a lot of time-wasting. I need to make progress FAST and I am really happy that I found Elena at Italian Connections. Zoom is working fantastically and I would say it is actually a lot more productive than F2F classes as we really make the most of our time. Thank you, Yasmine Drexler

This is my 4th attempt at learning Italian as my husband is Italian and we have travelled there quite a few times. But for some reason I have struggled with each and every learning experience, however, I have found Elena's class to be excellent. She is more than happy to answer questions and her patience is wonderful. The small class numbers create an ideal learning experience. I am looking forward to joining the next level!!

This course was very well designed for absolute beginners, like myself. The topics covered are so useful and foundational. I look forward to the next course!
