Susan Humphries is retiring at the end of the summer term and so if this group is to continue we need someone who is willing to lead this group. If you are able to help please either let Susan know or contact Ann Cousins – 01799 219 072 –

Group Co-ordinator:  Susan Humphries – 01799 500 066 –

The Italian class is full, having the ideal number of eight members. We are now in our fourth year. Any prospective new member would have to have a knowledge of basic Italian grammar, or be so proficient in French or Spanish that they could catch up easily with the rest of the class. Although we do the grammar thoroughly, conversation is given priority over written work.

Our waiting list includes people who need an absolute beginners’ class, and also those who want advanced grammar and conversation (so it would be great to find another Italian teacher! )  as well as those who seem to be suitable for the present class.

We meet on Tuesdays, 9:30 – 10:45 at the tutor’s home in Saffron Walden.  There is no charge except for copying and for the necessary text book, the new edition of the BBC’s Buongiorno Italia.
