This group is aimed at those with no, or just a little knowledge of
the Italian language. We learn by following the BBC Italianissimo course book.
Our initial aim is to be able to "get by" when holidaying in Italy
and to understand some of the culture, cuisine and geography.
We will be learning some essential grammar but we do not
intend to focus on that too intently.
We learn by books, CDs, videos and, on the lighter side
- music and Italian language movies.
Our aim is to keep our learning light-hearted yet meaningful.
