Having booked 6 months in advance for a two week intensive 'Introduction to Italian' class, we were pleased to receive confirmation two weeks in advance that the course would proceed. However, the class was subsequently cancelled at 4.30pm on the Friday before it was due to commence on the following Monday. There were no apologies, and the explanation made no sense (apparently they no longer had sufficient students despite having already confirmed 2 weeks' prior).

i spent a day here volunteering for a charity. The building is beautiful, the library outstanding and the staff absolutely charming. I am sure that everyone would be made to feel welcome here.

Beautiful building with an AMAZING library. They organise a lot of events, movie screening etc. Plus they hold Italian lessons, which are absolutely amazing. Teacher Feruccio absolutely rocks!
