Eat Pray Love

Have you seen that scene in Eat Pray Love where Julia Roberts orders the entire meal for the table in Italian?  I did things in reverse when I went to Italy many years ago and did an Italian course at the Centre of Italian Studies (CIS) in Carlton when I got back from Italy rather than before I went.

If you're contemplating a European adventure (or just love Italian food and culture like me), then you might be interested in Scuola Umberto.  This Italian for Beginners 6 week short course led by Italian teacher and translator Stefania Zen is held in an intimate yet fun environment behind closed doors at Umberto Espresso Bar  in Thornbury.  Each class is held on Tuesday nights from 6.30 - 8.30 pm and includes course materials, a delicious traditional Italian meal, glass of wine and coffee every week.  Sounds pretty fab to me!

Cost is $490 ($80 per week) and the next course starts on 18 October - 29 November (no classes on Melbourne Cup weekend).  Enrolments need to be done in person at Umberto Espresso Bar, 822 High Street, Thornbury (closed Mondays and Tuesdays) with a 50% cash deposit by Sunday 9 October.
