Borghese nel sogno della solidarietà
We had a wonderful time at the charity dinner in Borghetto benefitting the villages affected by the earthquakes. Thank you for your love and support!
Venerdì 9 settembre alle ore 20,00 presso il Centro Storico di Borghetto di
Menù: penne all'amatriciana, porchetta o asado (lo definiremo a breve) con patate fritte e dolci.
Excursion to Campo Cecina
Una bella gita a Campo Cecina, guidato da Gianmatteo. La camminata fino ai prati é veramente semplice, in circa 20 minuti siamo arrivati. Pranzo al sacco sul prato è il top! W si vuole camminare un altro po' si raggiunge il monte Borla con una mezzora in più di passeggiata.
Battle of The Sexes
What better way to finish up the year with the ultimate Battle of The Sexes! Men and women competed against one another in categories such as Intelligence, Home Skills, Grooming Skills, Communication and Creativity! Who won? THE WOMEN DUH! However, English Link would like to give a round of applause for each of the participants. Great job and thank you for the laughs.
WOW! We ate a wonderful Thanksgiving Feast in Tellaro with over forty members of English Link. The dinner consisted of mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, corn, brussels sprouts, stuffing, ham, cranberry sauce, gravy, apple pie and pumpkin pie! Thanks to everyone who helped cook this fantastic meal!!
Autumn Festival 2015
We had a wonderful Autumn Festival with our members in the NEW English Link! The night was filled with Autumn Trivia, Songs, and Scattegories and a Pumpkin Carving Contest! Congratulations to the winners!
Happy Halloween from the EL Zombies!
Summer Fete Night
We had a wonderful time celebrating the start of summer with our members! Summer Fete was a night of traditional British games played during the sunny season.
These games included a fruit taste testing contest, guess what is inside the beach bag, make a spoon dolly out of random crafts, arm wrestling , musical combs and the lower and higher card game! Thanks for coming out!!
This Shakespearian themed night was created by a member of our Consiglio named Virginia! Virginia is a talented actress and held major roles in local shows featured in the La Spezia theater.
Each of our members were separated into two casts and had to memorize a section from The Merchant of Venice and Romeo and Juliet. Later they performed their acts for the other groups...all in ENGLISH!
It was a theatrical night filled with drama, romance, and betrayal!
USA vs. UK
English Link has a new member from Florida in the United States of America! Therefore, we decided to have an epic battle between British and American culture.
We had our members try and guess the ingredients inside traditional British and American foods. They had to say whether city or states names were British or American. We also played a game with British flags and students had race to correct flag by answering which country had a particular landmark, food, or festival. It was fantastic!
Well no one brought 4 deer for the feast but soon much wonderful food was brought in by our members – delicious! We made the right decision to choose Italy to establish our colony ;)
Thank you to everyone who participated with such good-humour, kindness and wit. it was a lovely evening and we were so pleased to see so many of you, in spite of the weather! photos will follow soon. Congratulations to Franco who won the lottery for the EL Thanksgiving Hamper!
Dopo il recente voto per l’independence della Scozia dal Regno Unito ci è sembrato il caso di festeggiare il fatto che, per ora almeno, siamo ancora insieme. Venite a partecipare ad una serata in tono scherzoso sull’unione e sulle divergenze, sui costumi, sulla storia, sul cibo e sulle bevande dei paesi che compongono il nostro United Kingdom.
Come spesso accade, mangeremo insieme un buffet, per cui chiediamo a tutti di portare un contributo. Se è in tema ancora meglio ma non è obbligatorio,
Movers and Shakers
Believe it or not..we had a lot of fun on Sunday morning, working together to make the place look fresh and clean, while Kathryn cooked delicious English breakfasts!

Tea drinkers, Painters, Supervisors, Cooks, Cleaners, Filers, and Plumbers…….These are just a few of the “professions” we took on to get the jobs done!!!
A HUGE big up to the whole team, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Un sincero ringaziamento a Francesca, che ha fatto conoscere ai nostri soci il regista inglese Gaby Dellal, conosciuto per la sua direzione del film “On a Clear Day”.
se avete la possibilità di noleggiarlo o acquistarlo fatelo, ne vale sicuramente la pena!
Ci raccomandiamo che lo guardiate in lingua originale (con sottotitoli in inglese, ovviamente)!
Scuola Media Night
Che bella serata passata insieme ai nostri ragazzi della medie e i rispettivi genitori, prima di tutto ringraziamo le mamme che hanno cucinato per noi, e sopratutto ringraziamo tutti i ragazzi che hanno reso la serata molto divertente.
Abbiamo festeggiato la notte di Guy Fawkes (anche se con una settimana di ritardo) con giochi e quiz tutto in inglese.
Fun and games for Halloween. Great evening spent with our members, thanks to everyone who came.
