Italian for Beginners, Fishponds
What it is: A new group for members wanting to learn Italian from scratch. (If you know a bit, but not enough for a conversation, come along too.)
When it is: Alternate Thursday afternoons.
Where it is: At the Cross Hands pub in Fishponds, at the top end of Fishponds Road where the road divides. To the left is Downend Road and to the right is Staple Hill Road.
This is a group for absolute beginners, for those who would like to learn a beautiful language or for those who would like some knowledge for when they travel.
We'll be using BBC Talk Italian and Talk Italian Grammar books, and will start with basic everyday phrases, some grammar, learning vocabulary and using what has been learned, perhaps in simple role play. It will be interesting to hear the reasons why the interested parties want to learn the language and then the group can be tailored to their needs.

Contact before coming; Wheelchair access if needed; limited on-street parking; 2-5 mins to bus stops - the 49 and the 48 stops at Straites Parade.
