Italian - Languages for All
Find out more about studying Italian with Languages for All. Browse our modules to find the right level for you.
Italian is considered by many the most romantic and musical language in the world. It is the language of one of the richest culinary traditions but also of classical music, art history, design and fashion.
Our Italian modules are open to all students (for credits or not), members of staff, and members of the public.
Available on a semester basis (11-12 weeks), the modules aim to develop language competence and cultural knowledge for professional and recreational purposes through small group weekly classes and guided independent learning.
