December 2023 – New website online

Dear Teacher,

The website is back up and running with all the original content online. The Users database was deleted during the transition so you will have to sign up again to access the Tune worksheets. You may also find some broken links, please let us know.

The Tune Into English Roadshow

The Tune Into English Roadshow celebrated its 18th birthday in Vicenza on the 21st November. Thank you for the wonderful feedback the Roadshow has received so far this year – you can read some comments here. I will be visiting Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna and Campania this month and would be delighted to come to your school. You can see full details of the show here – please get in touch!
