Programme details

Italian means business, as well as culture. With its roots in Rome and the Latin world, through to the splendour of the Renaissance, the Italian language and culture can offer a unique combination of art and technology. Studying Italian will enable you to appreciate the culture that produced the Renaissance, Italian cinema and literature, as well as globally recognisable design, cars, fashion and food.

We offer Italian classes at most Common European Framework levels, starting from A1.1 (suitable for complete beginners), all the way to B2+, which offers students a very good knowledge of complex grammatical structures and wide-ranging vocabulary. Classes are taught by qualified native speakers, with a focus on communicative learning, to help you achieve fluency in the language of your choice. 

Classes are small (6-15 students) and present the perfect opportunity for you to interact in a multicultural, dynamic environment. With support from our expert teachers, they'll help to build your confidence, improve your pronunciation and increase your oral and written skills.

We offer different levels in different terms – please refer to the Structure tab above for more information.

Evening Language Courses at Regent's take place once a week for a period of 10 weeks, and will always occur on the same day and at the same time each week. 

Please be aware that this is not a degree level programme.
