It's a comprehensive course but you need to work hard away from the weekly tuition at City Lit.

[The tutor] is an inspiring teacher. She makes you want to learn Italian. The only problem is that the class it too large. It would be twice as good if it were half the size. But she copes admirably within this constraint.
