Nottingham Italian Language Conversation Group Message Board › New Italian Course - The Grand tour
Ciao again, amici. Just to let you know that our dear friend Marina (professoressa d'italiano all'universita'), will be teaching a new course about the Grand Tour - starting next Tuesday 13th May. The description - and a link to the course details - are below.
Have you ever thought about a special holiday in Italy but felt unable to choose where to go and what to see? Nurture your Italian through places: the Grand Tour is aimed at students who wish to improve their speaking and reading skills and learn more about Italy. Together we will explore some Italian cities on the Grand Tour, learning about their famous artists and personalities and discovering what makes them unique and worth seeing. Among others we will meet Paganini in Genoa, Rossini in Naples, Michelangelo in Rome, Botticelli in Florence, Vivaldi in Venice. Along the way we will also learn the precise meaning and correct pronunciation of musical, artistic and culinary terms like larghetto, chiaroscuro and bruschetta. After this class you will be ready for your very own Italian grand tour.
