Italian is taught at Peregian Beach College from Prep to Year 8. Each year level is provided with a stimulating and fun-filled program that incorporates activities linked to the broader curriculum. The learning process occurs through a combination of approaches that includes play-based activities in the early years to more complex instruction in Years 7 and 8.

Learning and student engagement is also enhanced through the use of both iPads and iPod touches. Songs, videos and stories are also incorporated into the Italian program at relevant age levels, as well as interactive activities to encourage participation.

The school has also made contact with a sister school in Italy. This enables students in Years 7 and 8 to communicate one-on-one via email with Italian students of a similar age currently learning English. This kind of interaction not only allows students to make use of Italian skills learned within the classroom, but also to teach their new friends their native language.
