Course Details

This course begins with an introduction to the basics of the Italian language, including grammar, word bank, and conversational-style phrases likely to arise during real life situations. Established teacher of eight years Nishu Varma provides a variety of study materials for her students, including lectures, worksheets, and mini-projects to ensure each student remains engaged in their education. At the end of this course, the final assessment will be graded by Nishu Varma, as well as an Italian native speaker, providing students with valuable feedback from two separate expert sources.

ABOUT THE TEACHER: Instructor Nishu Varma has achieved an honours degree in the English language, as well as degrees in English literature and Italian. Previously, Varma’s thirteen year sojourn in Italy served to reinforce her knowledge of Hindi, English, and Italian as she served as a teacher, translator, and intercultural mediator in an effort to bridge the differences between Italians and Indians. Since 2010, Varma has endeavored to build her repertoire of educational products including lesson plans, teacher support materials, and textbooks. During the duration of her courses, Nishu Varma is ready to meet each student where they are in their current language proficiency and help them build their skills and meet their multilingual goals.

The ipassio Edge

Students enrolling for this course on ipassio can be sure that they receive individual attention from the teacher, as the class strength is limited to 1 or 2 students. It also gives teachers the opportunity, to gauge their students progress in depth and make changes whenever and wherever required, to ensure the student gets the maximum out of this course. Since this course is detailed, students get the advantage of learning intricate details about this art form. The limited strength of the class also ensures that there is a strong bond between the students and their teacher clearing out any inhibitions that the student might have. The sustained guidance available from the teacher ensures that the student does not deviate from set goals or targets. Learning from a revered, experienced exponent of this art form, through the long duration of this course, keeps the student inspired and motivated to achieve more.


Students are not required to complete a prerequisite course before enrolling in Practical Italian for Beginners. Students are required to have a notebook and writing materials but all other materials will be provided by the instructor. This course will be taught in English, so all students must be proficient in reading, writing and speaking the English language. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to carry out basic conversations in Italian with Italian native speakers and be well prepared to move on to the next advanced Italian course. Whether the motive for learning is for personal use or business, investing in learning another language is an investment in yourself.
