This Survival Italian course is geared for true beginners, though those with some background are always welcome. Nancy provides dialogs and clear explanations to be able to interact with ease with native Italians. The first evening will be about correct pronunciation such as CH is the Italian K, as in Chianti. Other lessons include partnering to practice greetings, asking and understanding directions, ordering from a menu, reserving the room that you want, numbers, special places to see, shopping, avoiding travel hazards, and more. This course is based on practical and instant conversations without grammar. Nancy always welcomes questions which can be either spoken or written during the class.
