Italian with film transcripts

A New type of Italian Class in Toronto

Based on the double learning method this class combines Italian with Italian films. This means that movies will be an opportunity to learn some Italian and vice versa. Please note this is not a movie club. 

Watch it with a full transcript of the dialogue

We will be watching 2 or 3 scenes from a movie for 15-20 minutes; then by reading from the transcript we'll be discussing the following:

  1. lexicon
  2. idiomatic expressions
  3. grammar issues

We'll be finishing watching a film over 3-4 lessons. Once the film is over, we'll have a discussion class with students summarizing parts of the film in Italian. 

A multi learning style approach

Some learn best in social environments, some through images, others by simply listening and some through rational reasoning. Making an Italian lesson while watching films will suit your learning style.  

Not just passive watching but also active learning

You will not just watch a film passively but you will be engaged in a variety of individual and group based activities. 

And fun

To pep your learning up participants will be split into teams competing for a prize. 

Saturdays 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
