Italian Movie Club
Love discussing movies and striking up a conversation in a foreign language? This is your class! Our Italian Movie Club takes place every 10 weeks; the classes are structured but with plenty of opportunities for free conversation.
You watch the movies in the comfort of your home and then we get together for a discussion.
