We try to keep our sessions under review & amend them as members feel appropriate. Our BEGINNERS/REVISERS Group meets at the Railway Inn, Sole Street on the 2nd & 4th Fridays of the Month. The venue charges £2.25 per visit to cover hire & refreshments. If you are interested in this group please contact Rick.

ONLINE COURSES:

There are various online Italian courses run for free by various bodies here & abroad, including universities. You need to register & sign up for such courses; the modules can be downloaded on to your computer for you to access them in your own time. Several of these are on the ‘FutureLearn’ website, (click futurelearn.com), but there are many other sites. (See MOOCs).

One such Futurelearn course is Introduction to Italian (3 hours per week for 6 weeks), organised by the ‘Universita per Stranieri di Siena’, ie The Foreign Students’ University of Siena. Another consists of a series of Italian for Beginners short course units from The Open University which each last 4 weeks.
