ITALIAN CONVERSATION CLASSES
with Ferdinando Manzo – journalist and novelist
This informal conversation class is designed for beginners to advanced. The nature and history of the Italian language is just one part of the approach taken for an overall appreciation of the spoken and written word.
Emphasis is given to the fun of learning how to interact with locals when you’re on holiday. Plus the basics for getting around on your own and meeting people to add a new dimension to your trip.
Popular contemporary songs and movies are incorporated into the classes to encourage discussion, as well as a look at modern Italian lifestyle and society.
Manzo will canvas questions about:
- Changes in language in the 21st century
- The role of grammar in the context of globalisation of the language
- How language reflects the mood of the times and the people.
When: Thursdays 7.00 pm and/or Saturdays 2 pm
Fee: $20 per class (Private lessons also available.)
