Week 1: Talking about arrival and departure times


Described image

In Week 1 you are going to learn and practise how to make enquiries about travel times using the 12-hour and the 24-hour clock. This will involve using numbers as well as practising your speaking and listening skills. Before you start, you might want to revise Italian numbers.

When telling the time, the pronunciation of numbers is very important if you want to be correctly understood, so you might want to say the numbers out loud as you revise them. You will also have a chance to practise pronunciation in some of the activities that follow.

Finally, you will also have the opportunity to learn about the Tuscan Archipelago and about ferry services in Italy.
