My apologies as I thought I had replied by I phone. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would be happy to recommend it to others. I found the class a very convivial group and this was no doubt due to the excellent moderation of the Elena who apart from showing admirable patience was always vivacious and entertaining. I particularly enjoyed her lively anecdotal approach when communicating.

In just a few weeks I was able to string together sentences in Italian. Even better, I was understood by Italian people and was able to have a conversation with them!! My teacher was the fabulous Elena. I loved the happy class that she created. I enthused over the language, the culture and the travel that she shared with us. Stefani
