The online, 10-week and 5-week Cactus Italian courses are structured around a Italian language course book. The Cactus teachers will use the course book activities and exercises in class, and may also use the course book to set homework. The course book will be used approximately 60% of the time, with the other 40% made up of activities and tasks sourced by the teacher from additional resources. Your teacher will use their own materials, practice activities from other books, and ‘authentic materials’ from newspapers, magazines, the internet, video, radio, and podcasts. On this page you can check which course book you need to purchase for your level. We also offer our top tips on how to make the most of your course book.
