Saturday 4th December 2021 - 7.00 PM
Signorelli's Deli, 17 Burleigh Street CB1 1DG, Cambridge
Facciamo festa! After the enforced break last year, our popular truly Italian Christmas Party is back this December!
It will be a wonderful opportunity to meet up again after such a long time, and also to meet new friends.
We'll celebrate enjoying a rich buffet with all sorts of Italian deli, wine (or another drink of your choice) and the most traditional Italian Christmas cakes: "panettone" and "pandoro".
Advance booking is essential because places are limited. You can reserve your place by emailing:
firstname.lastname@example.org or using the contact form on our website.
Tickets for unlimited buffet and a drink of your choice: £ 23 PP. For each ticket, we'll give £5 to ACT (Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust) to support projects for the children treated at Addenbrooke's and Rosie Hospital in Cambridge. Once you have booked, then you can pay at the restaurant the day of the party (no advance payment required).
PLEASE NOTE: the Christmas Party is not a conversation session, it means that it is not necessary to speak Italian, all languages are welcome! So come along with your friends or your partner, and join us to enjoy a genuine Italian experience!
A PARENT'S VIEW ABOUT OUR "LIGHT ITALIAN CLASSES"
A chat with Marco's mum, Angelica, about our relaxed classes, with a higher level of support for students with special needs or learning difficulties
In January this year we started our Light Italian Classes and we are happy so see that the feedback we are receiving is very positive. Here we chat with the first parent that chose the class for her son.
THE ONLINE READING CLUB IS BACK IN OCTOBER
LEVEL: From intermediate
Our popular ONLINE Italian Reading Club is back this October with three short stories from the book "La boutique del mistero" by Dino Buzzati.
Novelist, short story writer, painter and poet, as well as a journalist, Buzzati is mostly known for his novel The Tartar Steppe, although he is also known for his well-received collections of short stories. His writing is sometimes cited as magical realism, social alienation, and the fate of the environment and of fantasy in the face of unbridled technological progress are recurring themes. He wrote also a variety of short stories featuring fantastic animals such as the bogeyman and, his own invention, the "colomber".
The ONLINE Reading Club is run by the teacher Laura Logozzo. After running for a long time her ‘in person’ reading club, last year Laura successfully started the online reading group to improve your Italian in a different and enjoyable way. The classes, which will be held weekly, will consist of reading, discussing and focusing on some difficult expressions, words and meanings, on emotions and feelings coming from the lecture and the message that the writer wanted to convey to readers.
Sessions will be held every Tuesday from 10:00 am to 11.30 AM, £15 per session (it is not necessary to attend all the meetings and you can pay as you go). Here are the short stories and the dates for October:
- 5 OCT - I sette messaggeri
- 12 OCT - Il mantello
- 19 OCT - La canzone di guerra
Laura suggests you read the story before the Zoom meetings (she can send you a copy).
