(10 October 2019)

Italian Language Course for Beginners

Thursdays 6.20-8.20pm St John’s College- Room TBC (Meet up at College reception for the very first class)


Italian is a beautiful language, the language of the cradle of the Western civilisation and the most romantic of all the roman languages. It is a definite 'must learn' it if you are passionate about delicious food, history of art, music and even business- did you know that “Made in Italy” is the third most recognised brand in the world after Coca Cola and Visa?

The course runs every Thursday for eight weeks starting Thursday 17 October 2019, with each session lasting 2 hours. The teacher is a native Italian speaker and the sessions will be highly interactive. All fees will be donated to the new Learning & Resource Centre (LRC) on the Bailey.


St John’s students, staff and SCR members – £20
Other members of the University – £30
Please give your online donation to the LRC.
