Six Italian Groups cover all levels from Beginners to Conversation.

Italian 1 [Basic Plus] Divertirsi in Italiano

Meets: 2nd & 4th Friday of the Month

Time: 10:00 – 12:00

We prepare something in Italian about our past fortnight, then we do a little grammar or vocabulary, try (?) some unprepared Italian conversation and end by reading a simple Italian book and translating.


Italian 2

Meets: 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the Month

Time: 10:45 – 12:15

After a bit of chatting in Italian we are using a book called “Contatti 2” which provides us with listening, speaking and reading material and also revises a grammar point in each chapter. We try to finish with something more lighthearted – a game, a piece of video and, very occasionally, an aria from an opera.


Italian for Beginners 1

Meets: 1st & 3rd Friday of the Month

Time: 10:30 – 11:30

This group has now been in place for a year and is learning basic Italian. We look at vocabulary based round useful subjects like food and drink, travel, directions, shopping and the family while having as much fun as possible as we learn.


Italian for Beginners 2

Meets: 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month

Time: 09:30 – 11:30

This is a newly formed group just started.


Italian for Beginners 3

Meets: 2nd & 4th Wednesdays of the Month

Time: 10:00 – 12:00

My Mother was Italian, and I believe I grew up speaking Italian better than English, until, that is, I went to school.  So Italian is my second language.
