Le gallerie ed i vicoli della tua città...

The arcades and laneways of your city… How well do you know them?

In this 1.5 hour Italian WALKshop, we will walk through a selection of Melbourne’s renowned arcades and laneways. As we walk through these beautiful and eclectic parts of our city, you will be encouraged to try to use Italian to describe what you can see, the buildings around you and the directions in which we move.

This ‘walking workshop’ is intended to be a fun and active language learning experience in a real-life context, where the elements of the city’s environment serve as prompts to talk about and describe different things in Italian that you might not usually cover in your regular learning space. You will be provided with some printed materials on useful vocabulary and phrases for the session to help you get started and the WALKshop hosts will be there to support you along the way.

This small group session is best suited for those with beginner to intermediate-level Italian. (If you are a more advanced speaker/learner and are looking for opportunities like this, please get in touch with us - we have other sessions in mind for those whose skills are more advanced!)

The WALKshop will be led by Monica from Su Misura Italy, an experienced Italian tutor and native speaker, supported by Rebecca from Irregular Endings.

When: Saturday 16th February, 10.15am-12pm (10.15am arrival for a 10.30am start)

Where: Melbourne CBD – meet on Degraves Street near the instersection with Flinders Street, outside Il Papiro (Shop 5 Degraves St, Melbourne VIC 3000)

Tickets: $40 per person (includes 1.5 hour experience to practise Italian in the Melbourne CBD led by Monica from Su Misura Italy and printed WALKshop materials on useful vocabulary for the session)
