We offer two class levels.

Standard classes run during the school terms. The course is 10 weeks long and students will attend one 90 minute class per week, either on Thursday afternoon or Saturday morning.

Intensive classes run during the school holidays. The course is one week long, and students will attend a three hour class every afternoon, from Monday to Friday.

Which class is right for me?

Students will learn different things depending on the term they attend.
Here is a useful summary to help you decide when to join us.

What will I learn and in which term?

Term 1 and 2, summer and autumn intensive

You cover many different grammar topics, and are given plenty of opportunities to start working on your language skills with listening, reading, writing and speaking practises.

Term 3, winter and spring intensive

You focus on practise exams, receive feedback on your work, and practise for the oral component of your exam.

Term 4

You will do one practise exam per week and receive feedback on your work.

When should I start?

Most Year 12 students decide to join our classes at the start of the year and keep studying with us until they take the exam. Sometimes they also attend one or more intensive classes.

Many students join us at the beginning of Year 11 and work with us for the entire duration of their VCE program. If the class is a mix of Year 11 and Year 12, the younger students will work on different activities especially designed for their level.

Please note we are not offering VCE classes at the moment.

Not sure of your level? If you know any Italian at all, we advise you to take a test so you can get a quick idea of whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced.

If you’re still not sure, you can contact us to discuss your experience and expectations further. We can advise on classes, online and offline resources, or even private lessons.
