Group Description

Ciao tutti!

We meet on Monday mornings to read and talk about those aspects of Italy and its culture that we most enjoy.  We start each meeting with conversation, usually about what we have each done or seen in the previous week.

We are currently reading some short stories and the opening chapters of books by famous Italian authors. Our current interest is i gialli (detective stories), of Sciascia and Camillieri.

We also read articles from the websites of Italian newspapers.

We watch programmes recorded off Italian television, (nature programmes are good because the presenters delivery is fairly slow paced), and Italian films.

From time to time we revise our rusty Italian grammar.

Some years of previous learning of Italian would be necessary to get the most from joining this group.

At the moment we are full, with a small waiting list.
