It has been several years now that the Dante Alighieri Society of Townsville has run regular Italian language classes. They are well attended and well known throughout Northern Queensland.
They attract equal numbers of Australians of both Italian and non-Italian backgrounds, showing how the sweet language of ‘sí’ and all things Italian, maintain through time the charm and charisma that has made Italian the most popular language in Europe in times gone by.
The Society is committed to maintaining these courses as the main activities of the organisation.
All educational activities are looked after by a Courses Director, who is a native Italian speaker and experienced teacher of Italian.
Throughout the year the Townsville Dante Alighieri Society holds educational and recreational events, which range from movie screenings of recent Italian film releases as well as classic Italian films, dinners, lectures on Italy including music and art, social games and so on.
These cultural events are usually announced on the Dante Facebook Page.
The Townsville Dante Alighieri Society also supports and participates in local celebrations and festivals, such as the Italian Republic Day and other local events that promote Italian culture and art.
