What are we planning?

present simple

Social evenings are a great way for our members to get closer to English culture, coming together for a night of fun and games using as much English language as you can. Each evening is scripted on a specific theme, and our organisers can be very creative!

All Our Members are encouraged to participate with ideas and themes for the events, as well as joining in those proposed by our staff. The objective is simple: Have fun using your English, at any level! Other activities include walks, trips, dinners and brunches. Let us know what you want by texting, emailing, or speaking up at any event, or at the General Members' Meetings. It's your call!

One of the great things about La Spezia is the choice of venues for concerts around here in the summer. Every year we are lucky enough to see some exceptional international artists. This year we decided to treat ourselves to a date with the charismatic Nick Cave. Elda Belsito wrote this insightful and vivid review of the evening
