Italiano in cucina:
The number of lessons depends on the type of course. For the culinary students we offer 5 lessons a week, for 4 hours per lesson. A total of 20 hours per week. The lesson is divided into two parts: during the first couple of hours the lesson is based on “Spoken Italian”, where students can learn the everyday Italian language; the last second half of the lesson is based on Italian for cooking, which gives the students the opportunity to enter in the Italian world of cooking. They will be thought how to read and write Italian recipes and the essential wording to be able to find a job in an Italian restaurant/hotel. Usually the group of culinary students is composed of a minimum of 4 people to a maximum of 12 people. |
