Contact This Group

The group was formed in February 2018. Our members range from those who had no previous knowledge of Italian to some with a basic understanding, either having participated in classes elsewhere or being self-taught. We are a friendly group and in keeping with the U3A motto of “Learn, Laugh, Live” we take our learning at a comfortable pace with plenty of laughs along the way.

If you fancy learning Italian, either because you enjoy languages, want to improve your ability to communicate on holiday or simply want a challenge to keep your brain active, come along and join our group. We have a relaxed approach, don’t employ formal teaching and welcome all abilities. Whether new to the language or an “old hand” come along and see what we have to offer.

We meet twice per month on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday at 2:00pm at Padiham Road Methodist Church.

NEXT MEETINGS: On 25th March meet at Aldo’ s on Bank Parade Burnley near the Post Office sorting depot.  We will meet on Wednesdays April 8th and 22nd at Padiham Methodist Church on Padiham Road at 2pm. Anyone who knows some Italian or is keen to learn would be made very welcome.
