September 2015 – The Tune Into English Roadshow – the Tenth Anniversary Tour!


Dear Teacher,

I hope you had a wonderful break and are ready for the new school year.

The first ever performance of The Tune Into English Roadshow was on 21st November 2005 at the Liceo Artistico of Naples – it has since been presented to over one hundred thousand students in 10 countries. I would be delighted to visit your school in this special celebratory year.
