The Tune Into English Roadshow

The feedback on the 2017-2018 show has been extremely positive (thanks!), with a report in the Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno as well as shows in Spain. The tour continues this month with shows in Friuli, Veneto, Lombardy, Tuscany and Campania – I look forward to meeting you and your students this academic year!
