Intermediate Italian. Il Gruppo Italiano
The Italian Group was started as a Beginners' Self-help Group sixteen years ago. Since then, we have progressed, so now have the prestigious title "Intermediate Italian".
We meet once a fortnight in each others' homes and have an hour or so of study followed by tea and biscuits. With so many teaching methods available, we have worked our way through the BBC course, Hugo Italian, Michel Thomas and plenty of reading books and dual text books.Sometimes we play silly games in Italian. We've also each taken contributions to an Italian meal at a member's home occasionally. Sometimes we go out for an Italian meal together followed by an Italian film at the cinema in Stamford or an Italian meal in Oakham. We've also been to a Puccini opera, La Bohème, in Leicester and two operas direct from the New York Met. Pagliacci and Cavalleria Rusticana, which were live-screened in Stamford.
We must be doing something right, as the Group is always full!! Apart from people emigrating or moving house to a new area, nobody has ever left.
