This was an excellent course, designed to reinforce Year 2 Italian. [The tutor] is a lively and entertaining teacher and she took a great deal of trouble to cover the aspects we asked for at the first session by tailoring the course to suit us. We were given lots of practice in speaking; grammar points were covered thoroughly and it was backed up with weekly homework which was promptly marked, with helpful comments.
