This site is designed as a collaborative resource for teachers of Italian in secondary schools in the UK and their students. If you would like to contribute in any way to the building of this site (contributing materials, editing or in any other way), please get in touch by sending an email to email@example.com.
NB: We are aware that many schools are now blocking emails sent from firstname.lastname@example.org. If you teach Italian in a school in the UK and have not received any email from us in recent days (and wish to receive communications from us in future), then please get in touch to arrange so we can reach you!
