A well constructed and taught class, easy to follow lessons which where also fun to do and the wine was enjoyable too.

I would recommend this 5 week basic Italian course to others especially if you have an imminent trip to Italy planned. In such limited time, as in 1.5 hours per week by 5 weeks you can only learn so much. But it is enough to communicate in a cafe, hotel, travel direction, buying a ticket ect. It does really help if you do a small amount of practise for home work each week otherwise but difficult to remember what you learnt from one week to the next. Good venue, good group size, very small glass of wine!
