Italian

Avanti, entrate!’ That’s how the Italian teachers, Emilia and Manuela, welcome you at Taalhuis. In class we speak  as much Italian as possible and we mostly focus on developing speaking skills, of course paying attention to the grammar and vocabulary.  There is also lots of room for culture, songs and news, to make sure you’re ready to face the next trip to ‘the Boot’.
