This was informative , very rigorous and fun. This teacher introduced a very varied range of topics relevant to contemporary Italy. He was always well prepared with appropriate course handouts. He was also a very good facilitator, drawing in all students to contribute.

The course tutor is a natural teacher and provided interesting and educational material. There was a good balance of language and cultural education. I have learned a lot. My fellow students were a facilitative and stimulating group.
