Course testimonials:

  • Rosa was again very good at getting the curriculum across and very patient with the class. The zoom video worked very well, but not as good as face to face
  • Our teacher Rosaria is an absolute joy - so warm and encouraging! We'll be back for the next term.
  • Rosa presents a very stimulating class. i learned a lot of basic italian, as well as the culture and information that will be useful when I travel in October. It was good to learn with a small group of students because it allows for questions, discussion, and humour and sharing experience of their travels in Italy.
