APICS Italian Cultural Centre Singapore: We are the only specialised Centre for Italian language & culture in Singapore, our roots originate since the 1970s. Our teachers are qualified, screened native Italian speakers with extensive experience in teaching Italian as a second language.
We are a non-profit entity and beyond language courses, we are proud to offer a huge variety of social, educational and experiential activities connected with Italian culture.
The Beginner 1 course targets people who have never studied Italian before. The students experience their first contact with Italian language, learning its sounds and basic structures enabling them to cope with very simple and practical communication contexts, both formally and informally.
The course allows learners to effectively develop all four major language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing - in the Italian language following the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
