This course aims at studying and consolidating some Italian proverbs and idiomatic expressions in a fun and interactive way.
It is suitable for learners with at least a lower-intermediate knowledge of Italian.
If you would like to know what “having your hands in the dough”, “go to that town” or even “everything makes broth” mean, while having fun in a very welcoming class atmosphere, then this is the right class for you!
By the end of the course, you’ll be able to use many of these expressions with confidence and sound more and more like a native!
