What will I be learning?

The regions of Italy are composed of 20 areas. Each region has a rich and diverse heritage: historically, geographically and culturally. On our virtual tour we'll discover the varied landscape and coastline, the ancient towns and villages, historic monuments and iconic buildings. The last part of each session will include culture, food and wine, with an optional tasting activity of a wine and local food (cheeses, prosciutto, olives, etc.)

How will I know how I am progressing during the course?

At DALS, we use an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) to set and review targets and provide feedback, enabling continual reflection and evaluation throughout the course. Learners will also receive verbal and/or written feedback on marked work. Learners will use their ILP to help track and monitor their own progress towards set goals, to support personal development and achievement.

There is no formal exam, although there is continual evaluation throughout the course.

Can I have help in the class?

At enrolment, it is important that you tell us if you have a learning difficulty or disability and require support. Learners declaring a support need will be referred for an assessment. If an enhanced support need is confirmed, a Support Package will be offered, to assist your progress in your learning and development, specific to your assessed needs.
