Italian try it out
Who is this course for?
This fun, FREE taster is suitable for beginners who are thinking of joining the autumn class and want to try it out in a sociable setting and meet the tutor and other learners. Learning a language is good for your mental health and well being and learning with others in a sociable setting is fun.
A brief ‘try out’ of some of the language, and culture of the country, designed to be interesting and fun. It will give you an idea of whether you would like to continue learning a language or just enjoy yourself in a social setting, with your chosen language.

Additional costs and requirements
A notepad and pen may be useful.
Will I have to do anything outside of the session?
You’ll leave with some ideas that you can practise at home.
