No dates are currently scheduled.

Together we will read the police mystery Mistero a Roma  The reading of one chapter each week will provide the context to develop further vocabulary, grammatical knowledge and idiomatic phrases, to talk about the characters and events, to conjecture about possible outcomes and at the same time learn more about the city in which the story is set.  Participants will be encouraged to speak in Italian, with support, about their travels, experiences and interests.  There will be a systematic revision of basic grammatical elements and, as always, a focus on verb conjugation.
