  • How do I know if my level of Italian is OK for this course?

This course is suitable for intermediate learners of Italian (from B1), which means the teacher will speak slowly and will help your understanding by typing the most difficult words on the screen or in the chat box. She will also encourage you to interrupt her in any moments if you need a clarification or have questions. This course is not suitable for complete beginners in Italian, but It’s totally fine for the participants to make mistakes and not understand everything. Please check the CEFR self-assessment grid if you have any doubts and remember that what your teacher needs from you in order to make things work is just motivation and the will to learn.

3 reviews for The Online Italian Course about the Italian Director Federico Fellini

  1. Laura (verified owner)

    This was a very interesting course which traces the key films in Fellini’s career and uses them as a discussion point not only about his techniques but about how his key themes relate to the changes in Italian society in the course of his career. You don’t need to have seen any Fellini films – but even if you are a fan you will be alerted to more of his works and enjoy the excellent teaching of Federica, who has created a well-structured set of four lessons.

  2. Philippa (verified owner)

    I enjoyed this course with Federica very much – I did find it challenging but I do think that I learned a lot about Fellini – his life and his work.
    I hadn’t seen very many of his films in the past, but now I’m really looking forward to seeing more and learning more about his work.
    The small group of 5 allowed time for good participation and for sharing our homework.
    I would definitely join a second course on the work of Fellini or another on Italy portrayed through film.

  3. Susie (verified owner)

    Each hour of Federica’s course absolutely flies. She is an engaging teacher and her course reveals all kinds of interesting aspects about Fellini, his films and his influences. If you know a little about Fellini and have seen some of his films, this course will give a deeper insight into how he responded to the times in which he lived. However, prior knowledge isn’t necessary because Federica provides background and explanations about everything from his childhhood to the clown themes in many of his films. She speaks clearly and goes over difficult vocabulary so there’s plenty of opportunity to clarify anything you’re not sure of. I’m looking forward to her next course.
